Our Choir program is open to all students in grades 4 – 8, regardless of previous singing experience. We meet for rehearsal once a week from 2 PM to 3 PM after school on Wednesdays.
Every year, our school choir performs for 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, such as the Grade 8 Graduation Mass, the NJHS Induction Ceremony, and a performance at the Blue Crabs Stadium.
If your child loves to sing, we would love to have them!
Archbishop Neale School’s STEM club focuses on the application of engineering/science fundamentals to everyday practical solutions. We cover 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 4 through 8.
The Beginner Band is open to 4th grade students or students learning a new instrument. Advanced Band is open to students who have at least one full year of experience with that instrument. All band members participate in the Archdiocesan Music Festival competition held in the spring. Our band also performs for our school community in a Christmas show and a spring show.
Archbishop Neale School offers an after-school Art Club, under the direction of our Art Teacher, Mrs. Weiss. Art Club is offered to students in the 4th grade through 8th grade, one day a week from 2 PM to 3 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.
