St. Clare School Awarded 3rd Place in Robotics Competition
A team of six St. Clare students participated in the first annual Wonder League Robotics Competition. Our students placed 3rd in California, and 43rd in the world, with 1,158 teams participating. Our points total was higher than any international team and several state championship teams.

The team recorded the solutions along with an introduction of the team and submitted a video. The videos were scored by judges based on accuracy, complexity of the code, "flair" and other factors.

FIERCE - Basketball Fundamentals Skills Clinic
Fundamentals. Our coaching team uses the basics to build the foundation of the game. The fundamentals are then translated to life: athletes are encouraged to practice in the classroom through focus and discipline and during the concept of student comes first and athlete second.
Integrity. We hold everyone involved in our organization to the highest regard and pride ourselves with integrity-always doing the right thing. Parents, coaches, faculty, and others engaged in our program are expected to show the utmost respect. Our goal is to build wholesome young individuals who take pride in themselves and their actions.
Education. We believe that the basketball court is an extension of the classroom. Our goal is to teach young student athletes the importance of making decisions and taking responsibility in its results both good and bad. As our coaches design clinics, student athletes will learn to design their own plans in life to achieve their goals.
Respect. Student athletes are made aware of their social responsibility to themselves, parents, teachers, coaches, and others in their community. They are expected to show respect to all those they encounter.
Community. We encourage positive contribution to local communities through our “Give Back” program. We reach out to local organizations and dedicate time for community service. Student athletes can take an active role in making a difference in their communities through fundraising, donations, and volunteer time.
Empower. Whether on the court or in the classroom, student athletes are empowered to take leadership roles and to actively participate and contribute to the game and their communities. Our team of coaches motivate them through positive reinforcement and provide them with a platform to learn and grow through our program.
