One reason for this atmosphere is the multitude of extra-curricular activities available for all students. We are also proud to offer a representative student government in addition to the many clubs.
Loughlin students show their strong commitment to community service through our Campus Ministry program, including Lasallian Youth service projects, and by supporting St. Mary’s, our brother school in Kenya.
