Student Clubs and Organizations

Why get involved in programs that go beyond the regular school day? Is it because the after school activities at Patapsco extend learning, offer opportunities for leadership, promote teamwork skills, and provide opportunities for daily physical activity.  After school activities provide learning in an environment that is free from the pressure of the regular school day and where students are pushed to explore and experiment outside their comfort zones. It’s where they are taught that sometimes failure provides the best learning opportunity of all.

Students in after school programs are less likely to join gangs, be victims or perpetrators of violence, or engage in a host of inappropriate behaviors. Students who participate in activities tend to have higher grade-point averages, better attendance records, lower dropout rates and fewer discipline problems than students generally.

Your experience at Patapsco should be more than just a school day.  Join a community that is active day and night and vibrant.  Take a look at our programs and hopefully you will find something that you are interested in joining.
