Student Life

Student Life is an integral and significant part of the student experience at Bishop McNamara. With over 50 student clubs and organizations, ranging anywhere from honor societies, technical teams, special interest groups and service organizations, most of our students are active in at least one group.

Extra-curricular activities provide students with opportunities to lead, participate and serve Bishop McNamara, area elementary schools, and community organizations.  To find out which organizations are best for you, go to the links at the left. 

For more information on any of the clubs or organizations, please contact Ms. Angela De Leonibus, Director of Student Life at

In this section, we have also provided additional links for other important areas of student life such as dining services, school forms & documents, bookstore, and class pages.
