The Spanish Club is one of Catholic Central’s largest extracurricular clubs with 79 members. There are several cultural games and events planned throughout the year for club members such as Spanish trivia game days, authentic food with a visiting taco truck, cultural field trips, and more.
The Spanish Club offers a connection for newer Spanish students to get involved with the school, to participate in diverse cultural activities, and to interact with students across all grade levels.Spanish Honor Society
For students who are excelling in their Spanish studies, the Spanish Honor Society, an academic honors club, offers students a challenging role as club officers. To join the honor society, Spanish Club members must have completed at least two semesters of Spanish, meet the academic requirements, attend monthly meetings, and fulfill the community service requirements. Officers run the meetings, plan and coordinate the Spanish Club events, and develop leadership experience.
The Spanish Honor Society students have a community service requirement, where they use their language skills in real life situations.
Members of the Spanish Honor Society participate in the language department’s travel abroad program, which has taken students to Peru, Spain, and Costa Rica, to name a few.
For both extracurriculars, students engage in activities from traveling to Detroit and eating authentic cuisine in Mexicantown, to leading community service projects for bilingual students in Detroit, a field day at the Academy of the Americas, and making Christmas Cards for residents in Southwest Detroit. In addition, students have participated in a clothing drive for a boys’ home in Peru.
