Activities & Clubs


Tolton Catholic offers more than just academics. Students have an opportunity to express themselves and excel in ministry, the arts and more. By participating in extracurricular activities, students develop skills such as leadership, working with others, responsibility and self-discipline. The school strongly encourages all students to become involved in at least one extra-curricular activity and in fact, most students participate in several. Once a year, the school hosts a club/activities fair for students to get to know the club’s goals and its members.

The Tolton Catholic High School music department offers many opportunities for students interested in performing as part of a musical ensemble.  Our band and choir meet during the school day and earn ½ credit per year towards the fine arts graduation requirement.  Throughout the year, both ensembles perform on campus, such as at the annual Christmas and spring concerts, and at athletic events. We also represent TCHS in the community, occasionally providing music for special events and local parish Masses.  In addition, all music students are encouraged to audition and participate in regional and state competitions and festivals.

Philosophical reflection . . . is not much different from just thinking hard,” says philosopher Alvin Plantinga. Philosophy Club is a place where we can think hard together about all sorts of deep questions about reality. How do we know what’s really true? Does God exist? What makes something right or wrong? Do we have free will? What does it mean to be human? What is the purpose of life? How do we treat other people justly? What do we owe to the poor? And much, much more. What questions would you like to explore? We will have open conversations, discuss the ideas of philosophers and other literature, investigate what we don’t know, debate ideas, and in general jump into trying to better understand the world. Come join us!
