Each student at St. Ignatius School is offered an opportunity to participate in athletics. Starting at age 3, our cardinals learn the fundamentals of soccer and the value of teamwork and good sportsmanship from our dedicated coaches. The Cardinals soccer program participates in a co-ed league run by LYSA/CSC. Our fifth through eighth grade students are given the chance to participate in basketball (boys and girls), volleyball (girls), baseball, and softball and compete against other Catholic and Christian schools.
Skill development and good sportsmanship are the main focus of our teams no matter the age or sport. While winning does help to provide validation for all of the hard work put on the field and court, the Cardinals athletic program stresses Christian leadership, character development, and teamwork above all else.

Through the years, the overall objective of 4-H has remained the same: the development of youth as individuals and productive citizens. 4-H serves the youth through a variety of methods, such as: organized club meetings, enrichment programs, camps, activities, and leadership programs on a school and parish level. Students can participate in activities and contest ranging from job interview, shooting sports, animal care, candy making, cooking, astronomy, livestock showing, sewing, photography, and many other topics that interest our youth of today. During the 2015-16 school year we hosted Blessing of the Pets, monthly club meetings, National 4-H Club Week, poster contest, Food Festival, and a Food Drive to benefit the Thenstead Center in Grand Coteau. Join 4-H and learn how to become a more productive citizen by living up to the standards listed in the 4-H Pledge.
