Judge Memorial Catholic High School Activities
Judge Memorial Catholic High School encourages and supports student involvement in activities that contribute to a balanced education, promote good health, and allow students to use or gain special talents or interests. Learning teamwork, positive competition, leadership, and problem-solving skills are part of the Judge Memorial experience. More than 85% of our students are involved in co-curricular activities.
Judge Memorial offers its students a wide-range of participation-oriented clubs and activities, designed by and for students to fit every interest. Judge activities are intended to cultivate key leadership skills of collaboration, cooperation, organization, teamwork, and trust, and are building blocks in the development of a well-rounded person. Involvement in activities and athletics teaches self-respect and respect for others. Participation builds self-confidence and helps students recognize and develop their God-given talents.
Annual class retreats, out-of-class experiences, international travel, and foreign exchange programs open students’ minds to the realization that learning surrounds us, wherever we go. Awareness and understanding begin when students recognize their sense of place. Students have participated in international travel to such destinations as France, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Germany, Greece, and Ireland. Nationally our students have visited the Oregon Coast, the Florida Keys, New York City, and Washington, D.C., to name a few. The Judge Community is involved in such international programs such as the Ulster Project, Invisible Children, Rotary Interact, and the German American Partnership Program.
Our advice to our students is “get involved” and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved at Judge. Every year, there is something new. From our award-winning, state-recognized Performing Arts Department, featuring dance, drama, music, and the arts, to service clubs, there is something for every student. Clubs and organizations begin informational meetings in late August/early September. Students are reminded to listen to announcements and visit the appropriate webpages for details.
