Student Life

SMR supports a well-rounded education that includes a robust fine arts curriculum and various extracurricular activities.

Clubs and Resources

All students choose a combination of clubs and resource periods at the beginning of the year. Clubs and resource periods meet during X-hour on a weekly basis. Every week students meet with their advisor. Some club options may change from year to year based on student interest. Resource periods are times when students have the opportunity to meet with their teachers to receive extra help in a subject area.  Click here to view a list of available clubs. 

Athletics

SMR fields 43 athletic teams, and every student is encouraged to try out regardless of previous experience. SMR is a proud member of the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC). The WCAC is considered one of the most competitive conferences in the country. The WCAC student-athletes are some of the most heavily recruited by NCAA colleges and universities.
