Committed to educating the whole person and developing well-rounded individuals, Pallotti offers a wide variety of extra-curricular enrichment activities for our students. We strongly encourage students to become active in the school community by participating in one or more activities. Our list of clubs and activities changes often based on student's interests and participation. Students often initiate new groups to meet their interests and Pallotti welcomes these ideas. 

It is our belief that through the exploration of extra-curricular activities including visual and performing arts, students will grow in character and depth of thinking. They can, through these activities, become better persons, able to contribute to their community in a variety of enriching ways. We encourage each Pallotti student to take an initiative to actively participate and strive towards personal accomplishments.

Cooking Club – Cooking will meet through google meet once a month on Tuesday evening at 6pm. Before each meeting students will receive a list of ingredients along with the food that will be made. They will be given the google link to use to come to the meeting and step by step instructions will be done during the meet. Most recipes will be completed within an hour and dinner will be served This will help students learn about cooking and appreciate the science behind it while realizing how fun it can be to cook a meal and have it ready when Mom and Dad return home from work.

Model United Nations, which began in 1955 as a small gathering among several Catholic high schools in Philadelphia, has become a worldwide system of clubs and conferences in middle schools, high schools, and universities. In this club, students learn valuable skills applicable to the real world while debating with their peers over various issues. Skills developed and refined include the importance of negotiating, compromising, quick thinking, and public speaking.

At Pallotti, Model UN commenced in the 2018-2019 school year. With over 50 delegates, it is the school’s largest and most diverse club. Members can attend any number of the  conferences we attend in a school year. We also host our own annual conference (PawMUNC) each Spring.

We are always accepting new members!
