School Life


There are more than 60 clubs, student publications, community service organizations, and music and performance ensembles at Calvert Hall.
By participating in an extracurricular activity (or several!), our students continue to develop a range of skills, including leadership, working with others, responsibility, and self-discipline.

Run by students from all class years, the full list of clubs and organizations is below. If you don’t see the club or activity you’re looking for, start it! All clubs (unless specified) are open to all students and grade levels.

School Service Clubs

List of 12 items.

  • The Ambassador Club

    The Ambassador Club is a select group of young men who are passionate about The Hall. Coordinated by the Director of Admissions, these students will accompany Mr. Mulford to high school fairs and middle school visits, representing Calvert Hall and interacting with prospective students and families.  Another key role during an Ambassador’s career at The Hall is his opportunity to be a tour guide at our annual Open House.  An individual tour with a prospective student and family seals the deal, as young men make their high school choice.  Finally, freshmen ambassadors play a unique role in the legacy of Calvert Hall, as they are chosen based on requests or interests to spend the day with an 8th grader when they sign up to be Cardinal for a Day.  Be an ambassador and help future Men of Intellect, Men of Faith and Men of Integrity.

The activity provides an opportunity for students to write news, features and sports stories, editorials, and to create various graphics of interest to the CHC community. The Hall promotes improved writing in a variety of disciplines, offers aspiring writers the satisfaction of being published, and gives dedicated contributors the option of serving as club officers after freshman year.

Training for the peer educators is an on-going process involving an overnight retreat and weekly team meetings that begin in September and continue through March. Teams of three peer educators then meet regularly with the freshmen, instructing and discussing issues of interest to the freshmen. The key factor in all Peer Education lessons is making healthy decisions. Some topics include: effective decision making, appropriate use of social media, speaking up, dealing with loss, respect and relationships, and alcohol and other drugs. The success of the program, since its inception, has been due to the dedication of the peer educators and their unique ability to establish strong relationships with the freshmen.

  • Peer Ministry

    Peer Ministry - The word ministry comes from the Greek word for “serving at table.” Peer Ministry, therefore, is a selected group of thirty juniors and seniors that are trained to “walk with” their peers. Peer Ministry is simply one student helping another student cope with the stresses of everyday life with an open and accepting attitude. For the peer ministers, ministry isn’t necessarily about changing others. It is about changing themselves so that they can become better friends to those on the journey. Peer Ministry isn’t about fixing problems or taking away others’ pain, but it is about sharing struggles and being compassionate friends. Peers are there for any student who needs someone to talk or walk with them on their journey. In terms of the program, peer ministers have a large role in CHC’s junior retreat program. Every peer writes and presents a “witness talk” on retreat, sharing his experiences and his faith journey. Peers also facilitate small group discussions and lead prayer. Peers also lead prayer experiences on our Freshman and Sophomore retreats as well. Peers provide examples and role models to younger students in their capacity as retreat leaders. The goal of the program is to get students involved in, and thinking more about, their own faith. The peers are a voice for the Campus Ministry Office and recruit other students for service opportunities, liturgical ministries, and prayer experiences throughout the year.

  • Mock Trial Team

    The Mock Trial Team provides students with the opportunity to learn how the law plays an integral role in their lives.  In working with students, coaches strive to further students' understanding of, and appreciation for, our constitutional form of government.  The team achieves this by participating in the Citizenship Law-Related Education Program for the Schools of Maryland High School Mock Trial Competition. Calvert Hall competes against schools all over Baltimore County for local and state awards.

  • Model United Nations Club (Model UN)

    The Model United Nations club, also known as Model UN, is an educational simulation and academic competition in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. Model UN involves and teaches research, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Participants in Model UN conferences, referred to as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries where they represent members of that body. They are presented with their assignments in advance, along with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent. At the end of a conference, the best-performing delegates in each committee, as well as delegations, are sometimes recognized with awards. Model UN provides students with multiple opportunities to engage in the field of international studies. By participating in committees, listening to and asking questions of distinguished representatives of the international relations community, and meeting students from all over the globe.

  • Robotics Team

    The CHC Robotics Program provides an opportunity for students to explore and apply Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills in a creative, collaborative environment. The team uses CHC provided equipment made by Vex Robotics (V5 - VEX Robotics) and coded using a Robot specific C programming language. Robots are designed to compete in globally recognized games developed annually by the Robotics Education and Competition (REC) Foundation. Rules for the current game can be found at Competition - V5 - VEX Robotics . Students meet twice weekly in a dedicated Robotics Center on campus.

    For beginners, the Developmental Team focuses on teaching students the fundamentals of robot design, cooperative engineering, software coding, driver skills and game strategy. These teams build and code robots to compete in internal competitions. As students advance in knowledge, commitment, and skill, they may join the Competition Team which competes in local, state and worldwide events. These students refine their skills and concentrate on achieving excellence through reliable design, detailed documentation, verbal communication, strategic planning, and peer mentoring.
    Calvert Hall 5588 teams have won five of the past seven Maryland State Vex Robotics High School Championships and have earned the privilege to participate in eight Vex World Championships.

  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Club

    The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Club has an interest in the research and development of unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones. We have built and flown fixed wing vehicles and quad copters. We have competed in the Student Unmanned Air Systems which is aimed at stimulating interest in innovative technology required to develop these systems. The competition challenges students to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a system capable of completing a specific autonomous aerial operation. The Cards have won the high school division and competed favorably with the many national and international universities. This year our club is looking to expand into mini drone racing and photography. Our club usually meets once a week on Mondays in room 109 and is always looking for enthusiastic members.
