SMC Religious/Civic Activities
St. Mary Central offers a variety of co-curricular activities that foster students' desire to support and gain experience in in civic, social justice and governmental issues.
Through this international program, a St. Mary Central family welcomes a student from an Eastern European country into their home for an entire school year. While in the United States the student improves his or her knowledge of English and gains a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith and western culture. As part of the program, the student makes a commitment to return to his or her homeland to serve as a leader in re-integrating the faith into the community where it was once banned. For more information, visit the Global Outreach website.
Key Club, whose motto is "Caring--our way of life," is an international high school service organization. Key Club members show they care about the people and communities around them by volunteering their time while working with others and meeting new friends. The Neenah-Menasha Breakfast Roundtable Kiwanis Club sponsors the SMC Key Club.
Students prepare both the defense and prosecutorial sides of a legal case and participate in a mock trial, competing against other high school teams.
Retreats for Grade Schools
St. Mary Central students have the opportunity to serve as retreat leaders for students from local grade and middle schools. Students commit to six lunch meetings to plan and prepare for the retreat and then lead the retreat on the designated date.
Teens for Life
The Teens for Life group at St. Mary Central High School meets regularly to plan various activities that further the call for the sanctity of life. Annually, Rock for Life has a day of silence and a day of fasting to bring attention to these issues. The group participates in many activities that are planned outside our school community, such as Bowl for Life and the Wisconsin State Pro-Life Convention. Participation from parents is welcome.

The mission of SMC's student council is to promote student participation and leadership in school events. It is composed of 24 students, elected by their classmates, as well as other students who wish to participate. The entire student body elects the student council president (a senior), vice-president (a junior) and secretary (a sophomore). Each individual class elects their own class officers (president, vice-president, secretary, and class representative). The student council is responsible for planning the three major social activities of the school year: Homecoming, Winterfest, and Prom, and for promoting school spirit and school service projects.
