Student Life

At Holy Family Cristo Rey, we want our scholars to have a full, well-rounded, and fun high school experience! Through school-sponsored sports, clubs, and organizations, we offer scholars opportunities to develop leadership skills, explore new interests, make lasting friendships, and be recognized for their achievements. The Holy Family Cristo Rey Mighty Tornadoes compete in seven sports— volleyball, basketball, indoor track, outdoor track, soccer, baseball, and softball—and are cheered on by both our dance team and cheerleading squad. We currently offer eight 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 Hispanica (Spanish Honor Society).

Board Game Club

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.  You do not need to show up to a certain number of meetings, just show up when you can and when you want.  We are all about fun and fellowship with no other obligations.
