Student, St. Mary's Academy, Class of 2016,
At St. Mary's Academy 3 extracurricular activities that are most popular would probably be dragon boats, basketball and mock trial. Dragon boats is a unique opportunity that most schools don't offer and is a benefit of being located near the river. Basketball is such a popular sport for us due to the large amount of talent we have and our huge crowds of students at every game to cheer the teams on. Mock trial is very popular as well due to our strong sense of competitiveness and teamwork. I would personally recommend all of these but in addition our TIES program. TIES is a mentorship program we offer in which high schoolers are paired with 5th graders from multiple elementary schools to teach them that science isn't just a field for men by planning and preforming fun labs with the 5th graders.
