Clubs

Get Involved!

Bishop Guertin students are encouraged to spread their wings and explore different interests, become active, form new friendships and become a contributing member or our community.

Bishop Guertin offers a wide range of programs, activities and organizations to meet the educational, cultural, social, spiritual and recreational needs of the student. Students are also encouraged to create and develop new clubs!

Students don't have to be just an athlete, just a musician, or just an academic at BG. Valued as individuals with diverse talents, our students are free to cultivate their personal interests and develop as leaders.
