Here are brief descriptions of some school-sponsored activities students have the opportunity to be a part of.

We have three academic teams at NCC: Varsity, Junior Varsity, and a Freshman team. Competition begins in September, and students participate throughout the school year, including at tournaments.

The Science Club is a group of students with a passion for science and who are eager to learn about exciting things outside of the classroom.  It is a student led club where members will have the opportunity to attend field trips to places such as the aquarium and zoo. Other activities will include caving and hiking adventures, robotics, and animal care.  The club is open to all grade levels.

Faculty / Staff Moderator: Mrs. Beth Sketch,


The Blood Drive Committee works in conjunction with the Hoxworth Blood Center to host donor drives twice per year. NCC is proud to give back to the community in this capacity. We have always ranked among the top donor schools in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. This Committee reflects a continuation of that tradition.

Faculty / Staff Moderator: Mrs. Beth Sketch,


In Breds for Life, students are exposed to various pro-life issues ranging from abortion to euthanasia. We hope that, through this group, students will develop a deeper respect for human life from the moment of conception to natural death. We try to achieve this goal through emphasis on prayer, sacraments, education, and involvement in local pro-life activities. Students also have the opportunity each year to participate in the March for Life where they travel to Washington, DC.

Faculty / Staff Moderator: Mr. Ron Auteri,


This group is open to all students who are interested in participating in school and community liturgies. With details for the choir and school Masses coordinated by the moderators, these students play an active role in school worship. The church choir conducts outreach activities, too, by singing at local schools, parishes, and other community agencies.

Faculty / Staff Moderators: Mrs. Caitlin Strassburger,; Mr. Gary Devoto,


The Culinary Club is an extracurricular group where students can learn the basics of cooking in the kitchen, better understand how to create culinary dishes and menus, and extend their culinary interests into the real world with visits to local restaurants and culinary attractions. These students are also afforded opportunities to practice their skills at school events. The Culinary Club hopes to instill a greater understanding of the world of food, develop positive attitudes, foster strong leadership and management skills, and develop communication abilities.

Volunteer Moderator: Claire Therese,


For the last 28 years, the Drama Club has given students an understanding of theatre and has allowed them to have an opportunity to express themselves through fine art. Culminating in major musical productions with a Fall Cabaret and Spring performance, these opportunities are a wonderful way to assist with self-confidence and self-esteem. There are typically just as many students helping off-stage as actors on-stage. NCC is dedicated to fostering the total drama experience of learning, commitment, and theatre.

Attention:  Grade School Students -- Summer Drama Camp 2018

On behalf of the Drama Camp team, we hope the school year is going well for you and the kids. Also, we would like to apologize for the delay of sending out camp information. We were waiting for information to be approved by NCC's Administration. But it is true! This year we are separating the camps once again: 

The Pony Players (1st-4th Grade) and the Super Troupers (5th-8th Grade).

We learned last year that the two age groups require different areas of attention in developing theatrical skills. So this year the Pony Players will be focusing on learning the basics of performance and acting while the Super Troupers will focus on what it means to put together a production. No previous theatre experience required. So if your children have friends who didn't participate last year, encourage their parents to sign them up! Both shows are still TBA. But we want to make it a big, exciting summer.

All the information can be found on the Registration Forms. Here are the links for the Summer Drama Camps forms!

Super Troupers:

Spread the word! This is going to be our best summer yet! Please feel free to message me with any questions!

Intramural basketball is a great club for students to become involved in over their Christmas break. For two weeks over Christmas break students are invited to play basketball with their friends in a non-competitive environment. Last year we had over 80 students participate, both boys and girls. After the first week, teams are ranked and a tournament is played. The winning team has a chance to play the teachers during a pep rally in January.

Faculty / Staff Moderators: Mr. Joe Weber,


Students with strong math skills have the opportunity to compete in local and national math competitions through Mathletes.

The Student Ambassador Program consists of students who assist the Development Department with recruitment activities in our grade schools.
