Clubs & Activities

Our students are involved all over this place. 

On any given day students arrive early to lift weights or plan events, stay late for rehearsals or to help classmates, and fill the free moments of their day with the activities that fulfill them.

De Smet Jesuit High School is committed to educating the whole person, so we offer opportunities that harness talents, develop skills, build friendships, strengthen bonds between teachers and students, and challenge students to manage their time wisely.
