The primary purpose of the Co-Curricular Activity program at Assumption Catholic School is to promote the physical, mental, aesthetic, social, emotional, and moral well-being of the students through participation and competition.
The goal of Assumption Catholic School’s Co-Curricular program is to provide a wide variety of activities that emphasize good sportsmanship, dedication to performance improvement, team effort, personal and spiritual growth and fun.

The Archery Club, needing keen awareness of safety procedure, and being a target sport promotes student success in motor skills, listening and observation skills.
