Student Clubs

TC offers a wide variety of clubs and activities that round out a student’s high school experience. The list of our active clubs changes often. Students often initiate new groups to meet their interests and TC welcomes these ideas.

Current Clubs and Moderators

Art Club is a place where current art students, former art students and those who have never even taken a class, but are interested in art can come to enrich themselves and hone their artistic skills.

A crucial element to Catholic education is being exposed to and living out Christian service. The Blessed Edmund Society of Tampa, or BEST, is Tampa Catholic's student-run leadership organization dedicated to serving the marginalized in and around Tampa Bay. This group, modeled after the founder of the Christian Brothers, is composed of Crusaders that have a heart for dedicating their time to initiatives and missions that support Gospel truth.

If you are a person who loves French music, videos, and cuisine, then the French Club is for you!

We learn French words and expressions while listening and dancing to French music, or we watch parts of French films. Other days we do crafts related to upcoming French Holidays. But above all, we always eat delicious French food and we learn about French culture. The French club is open to all TC students. Come join us!

LO (Loyal) COS (Comrades) = Derived from the line in our Alma Mater "Loyal Comrades Sing".

Each year this group works hard to promote school spirit by bringing students, faculty, staff and alumni together and supporting the athletes of our Tampa Catholic family. The Green Locos sponsor pep assemblies, cheers at games, and are one of the driving spirit forces behind school pride. There are two important aspects of a successful Spirit Club: a really pumped up student body and good planning! From the fun series of events of a pep rally to the signs posted all over the school, its the Green Locos that pull it off flawlessly. Locos are keeping the spirited traditions alive at Tampa Catholic.

Theatre TC helps students excel in several aspects of theatrical production from acting, directing, stage managing, lighting, costuming, makeup, and set building. Each year we put on two productions for our TC and surrounding community.

The winter production is a one-act show, taking place during all school lunches, and in the evening as a dinner show. The spring production is a two act show taking place over the course of a weekend with several evening and afternoon performances.

Eligible students, who are active in Theatre TC, can apply to be apart of the Thespian Troupe and compete at district and state competitions. The club also hosts Talent Night during TC’s homecoming week.
