At St. John Neumann, we offer a variety of extra-curricular activities that students may participate in, some of which are:
An educational competition that challenges students in ten areas of academic achievement - science, literature, art, music, social science, economics, mathematics, an essay, public speaking and the team competition. There are two scrimmages, a regional meet, a state meet and a national meet annually. Students in Grades 9-12 take part in Ac Dec. For more information, visit www.usad.org.
