Activities & Clubs

Conwell-Egan Catholic High School offers an array of extracurricular activities to make your high school years even more meaningful while promoting active leadership and cultivating friendships.

From freshman to senior year, our students participate in a myriad of activities, where the main purpose is to make you feel "at home" here at CEC. The teachers and community mentors who moderate our clubs put forth a great amount of time and effort to best serve the needs of the student body. If you happen to have an interest that is not represented by one of our many clubs or activities, please do not hesitate to speak with Ms. Markmann in Student Life about finding a new club.
