Arts and Clubs

In addition to curricular and athletic offerings, we provide students with a wide variety of opportunities for enrichment:


NEW! Cashe Club (7-8) The HA Cache Club is an after school activity where a group of middle school students in 7th and 8th grade participate in official Geochashing in Malone Park. We search for Geochaches using map coordinates, compasses, hints, and secret codes that we crack, all while trying to avoid catching the attention of muggles!

NEW! Lego League (7-8)  HA is proud to begin a FIRST Lego League club! FIRST Lego League includes more than 235,000 students from around the world, and in 2017 will explore the human water cycle: how we find, transport, use, and/or dispose of water. Teams will build autonomous robots with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology and perform a series of missions. In addition to the robot game, students will choose and solve a real-world human water cycle problem. Students will practice STEM skills, while learning to make positive contributions to society. 

Mad Science (K-6)  This program offers fun, inquiry-based, hands-on experiments.  It covers a wide range of science topics such as physics, optics and rocketry.  

Scouts: (K-8) We have a strong scouting program offered for both boys and girls.  It’s a great opportunity for children to learn responsibility while growing in their friendships and faith.

Mass Servers (5-8) This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to grow spiritually and become an integral part of the mass.  Both boys and girls are encouraged to participate.

Run for Faith (6-8) Run / Walk for Faith is a club for middle school runners, as well as parish members, that parallels the endurance of a sport like running with the endurance of one’s faith.  The club runs for 6 weeks and there are guest speakers who talk about running and spiritual life.  At the conclusion of the program participants will try to complete either a 5K or half marathon.  We will also celebrate with a spaghetti dinner.

Student Council (6-8) This is an organization comprised of middle school students elected by the student body.  The Council works closely with staff to create fun activities for the school as well as charity events for the community.  It strengthens the students speaking and leadership qualities.
