Our Choir program is open to all students in Grades 3 – 8, regardless of previous singing experience. We meet for rehearsal once a week from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM after school on Wednesdays.

Every year, our school choir performs in two major concerts: a Christmas concert and a spring concert. The school choir also practices throughout the year to sing at all of our monthly school masses, as well as other events.

If your child loves to sing, we would love to have them!


The STEM club combines engineering and science fundamentals to everyday life. Your child can expect basic aerospace, mechanical, chemical, and electronic technical applications.

One of the cornerstones of our club is to learn while having fun. Each student has the opportunity to explore their own interest by introducing science projects or ideas.


The Archbishop Neale School Band Program provides exposure to a variety of instruments and opportunities for performance to students in grades four through eight.

The Beginner Band is open to fourth-grade students or students learning a new instrument. Advanced Band is open to students who have at least one full year of experience with an instrument. Our band also performs for various school events throughout the year.

Art Club

We offer an after-school Art Club that is supervised by our art teacher, Mrs. Weiss.

Art Club is offered to students in fourth through eighth grade. It’s one day a week from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM.

Art Club runs in two sessions in autumn and spring. Students enjoy a wide variety of experiences in 2D and 3D art projects and learn new techniques with different materials, including papier-mâché, jewelry making, beading, glass fusion, painting, wood burning, and much more.

National Junior Honor Society

The National Junior Honor Society exists to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership and citizenship, and to encourage the development of character at Archbishop Neale School.

As members of the NJHS, we strive for a better community in our school and in the world. We do a monthly outreach for different charities with fun fundraisers that include the whole school. The NJHS is made up of students with academic excellence who want to make a difference.
