St. Ignatius Catholic School and Chesterton Academy offer a variety of co-curricular opportunities and clubs for students. Co-curriculars complement the educational experience of St. Ignatius students and provide additional opportunities for them to try new things, stretch their creativity, strengthen faith, develop character, and assume leadership roles.


St. Ignatius students in grades 6-8 are invited to join their friends for fun, fellowship, and pancakes at Breakfast Club! Students play games, foster friendship, and enjoy breakfast together. The fun starts at 6:45 a.m. in the cafeteria. Please enter through Door #4 (the school gym entrance.)

Middle School Chess Club

Chess Club is open to students in grades 6-8 and meets every Friday during lunch hour. Whether your child is a long-time chess player or is interested in learning how to play, this club offers learning, fun, camaraderie, and healthy competition among middle school students.


St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy students who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) can participate in STEM Club to learn more about those subject areas, hear from industry professionals, and see how God’s creation, faith, and reason all come together.

Yearbook Club

St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy students create a yearbook every school year to capture and remember their high school years. Yearbook Club takes photos, plans layouts and pages, and manages the project.

Due to the integrated and whole-person approach of classical education, many disciplines, subjects, and interests (choir, band, art, drama, service, pro-life ministry, etc.) are a part of our curriculum and embedded in the culture of our school and may not have a designated separate “club”.
