St. Barbara School has a long tradition of excellence in cheerleading, including several local and national championships. Graduates from St. Barbara School who participated in cheerleading have gone on to cheer at the high school level as well as earning scholarships for cheerleading in college. Cheer helps develop coordination and balance, two skills that are vital to growth and can be applied to other sports and activities.

Cheer is open to all students in grades TK-8. Cheerleading includes competitive dance, sideline and show cheer and competes in local and regional competitions.

Chess Club

The ancient game of chess exercises both sides of the brain by developing logic, critical thinking and creativity. It increases concentration and memory, improves reading skills and helps develop problem solving skills. Join our Chess club every Tuesday after school.

Liturgical Choir

Our liturgical choir is open to all students TK-8 who want to be part of our weekly Mass and praise with song. Singing is important because it builds self-confidence, promotes self-esteem and social inclusion and enables students of different ages and ability to come together in praise and worship.  Choir meets on Monday and Wednesday after school.
