Clubs & Activities

Robotics Club

Fourth through eighth grade students may join one of our robotics teams that compete in the First Lego League.  In addition to robotics competitions students work on a research projects and presentations based on the year’s theme.  Past themes have included Renewable Energy and the Human Water Cycle.  Students learn to apply Catholic/Christian values in the pursuit of knowledge, friendly competition, and helping others in a team environment. In addition to the First Lego League, the St. Philip Neri Robotics Club participates in the annual RobotFest event held at the National Electronics Museum in Linthicum.  We are also members of the Catholic Robotics league and participate in events throughout the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Student Council

The purpose of the St. Philip Neri School Student Council is to give students the opportunity to voice their concerns and resolutions of conflicts fostering the development of future citizens. This organization exists to provide opportunities to develop and exhibit leadership qualities in the student body as well as to provide students with opportunities of closer cooperation between the student body, the faculty and the administration.   At all times, members of this organization are expected to promote an increase in school loyalty and spirit through example and attitude. The council is also expected to coordinate spiritual, social and service opportunities for the student body.”  This club runs all year.
