Clubs & Organizations

At Holy Family Cristo Rey, we want our scholars to have a full, well-rounded, and fun high school experience! Through school-sponsored clubs and organizations, we offer scholars opportunities to develop leadership skills, explore new interests, make lasting friendships, and be recognized for their achievements. We currently offer twelve student-driven clubs, and are always looking to add more ways for scholars to get involved. Holy Family Cristo Rey also has chapters of five honor societies: the National Honor Society, the National English Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics Honor Society, Rho Kappa Social Studies Honor Society, and Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (Spanish Honor Society).

Do you play an instrument, or would you like to learn how to play one? If so, you should join the HFCR Band! All scholars are invited to join, regardless of experience level. Available instruments are trumpet, trombone, French horn, flute, clarinet, and saxophone.

Board Game Club is a chance to hang out with friends after school, make new friends, and learn new games.  We like to come together in light-hearted competition and create lasting memories.  We play board games you probably have not heard of like Coup, Code Names, Unstable Unicorns, and much more.  There is no application process to join, all you need to do is show up and try to bring a friend if you can.   We are all about fun and fellowship with no other obligations.

Is there a club that we don't currently have that you would like to start? We encourage you to take the lead and help us start it! Many of our current clubs, such as the Board Game Club and K-Pop Club, were started by scholars and have grown over the years.

To start a club, all you need is an idea or plan for what you want your club to do, a few other scholars interested in joining, and a teacher or staff member to serve as the sponsor. We can't wait to see what you will come up with! Questions? Talk to a teacher or administrator.

Holy Family Cristo Rey offers a number of sports for interested scholars:

  • Volleyball

  • Boys' & Girls' Basketball
