Student Life at Father Ryan

So what is the daily life of a Father Ryan student like? While every person spends time in the classroom, it's the time outside of class that lends the unique vitality that Father Ryan is known for. It's the exciting action on the soccer field, collecting canned goods with a service club, rehearsing onstage with the Purple Masque Players, competing with Science Olympiad or decorating for the Homecoming Dance.

There are hundreds of possibilities for each and every student, but one aspect is the same: each receives a well-rounded education in an environment where he/she is known and loved. Father Ryan gives each student the means to learn and excel in whatever interests he or she wants to pursue.

Clubs & Organizations

We encourage each person to participate in clubs and organizations as a means to meet peers and acquire leadership skills. Students may choose from Father Ryan's wide variety of student clubs and organizations in service, government, the arts and more.
