Academic Clubs

Academic Team

The Academic Team meets every Friday after school from the first week in October until the second week in June. From January to May they participate in various competitions around the state. Students don't have to be a "brainiac" to enjoy the group sessions; each student has some specific expertise or knowledge that contributes to the teamwork. Students learn how to bond as a team and discover their academic skills and talents.

Moderator: Mrs. Kowalski

American Scholastic Mathematics Association Contests

ASMA sponsors a series of 6 international contests from October through April. Cumulative scores determine school winners and individual winners. Participation is open to any student at Immaculata of any grade level. Knowledge of Algebra I,II and Geometry is essential as are creative problem solving skills.

Debate Club

The Debate Club is designed to help students learn vital skills in the area of communication, oration and argumentation. The club will meet once or twice a month and learn various techniques and practice their skills. Even though the nature of debates is serious, we never forget to have fun along the way.

Moderator: Mrs. Eckert

Magnificat (Yearbook)

The Magnificat, which honors our school's patroness the Blessed Mother, was first published in 1966 to honor the first graduating class. This student publication is produced within the Journalism class program, but volunteers can help every Tuesday morning (with a pass) during activity period. This all-color book with spectacular photography, layouts, and stories, tells the story of each year, touching upon the four pillars of Immaculata: faith, scholarship, service, and friendship. A senior breakfast is held to distribute the highly anticipated book to the future graduates and the younger students receive it later that day at a school-wide celebration.

Moderator: Mrs. Kristin Boczany

Model United Nations

Model UN is an extracurricular activity in which students imitate delegates to the United Nations and "model" UN committees. Students are assigned to take a certain country's position on a global issue and research to form a resolution. Conferences are hosted by MUN-affiliated colleges or high schools and occur throughout the school year. At these conferences, students either solely or duly participate in a mock United Nations session. Club members will participate in meetings to discuss global issues and prepare for mock UN sessions. For the past 12 years, Immaculata has earned over 110 awards and has established itself as a powerhouse team.

Youth and Government

Youth and Government give students the opportunity to participate in a simulation of the NJ State Government during a yearly conference held at the State House in Trenton. Students can propose new laws, propose changes to/repeal existing laws, as well as many other aspects of state-level government. This is a great chance to work on public speaking, debate skills, and networking with students from schools all over New Jersey.
