When asked by his students how one could live a long and healthy life, St. John Bosco's maxim consisted of four things: always have a clear conscience, moderation in eating, surround yourself with good companions and live an active life. At Savio, we aim to provide the opportunity for kids to be surrounded with great companions and variety of sport opportunities for children of different skill levels.
St. Dominic Savio is part of of the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) which operates interscholastic sports for 170 Catholic elementary schools throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Some sports are also offered through our parish St. Dominic Savio. Practice for most sports are always on-site with background checked and certified coaches

DRAMA CLUB PRESENTS:
During after-school programs, children engage in exciting hands-on activities, watch spectacular demonstrations, participate in inquiry-based discussions and take home things that they have made themselves like model rockets, periscopes, Mad Science slime, and more!
Our hands-on, one-hour science programs offer a variety of earth, physical and life science and include topics such as electricity, magnetism, robotics and more.
More than 65% of students will work in jobs that don’t even exist today.¹ We want to help prepare them for that future by getting them excited about where computer science (CS) can take them. So we’re working with programs and supporting partners that reach millions of students every year.

The drama club is an extra-curricular activity in which students in grades 4-8 can learn to act out a play, learn about stage production, and the theatrical arts. The Drama Club has two productions through out the school year. Participants have the opportunity to build confidence and express their creativity, while having fun.
The Marian's Club provides an opportunity for young girls to grow in the knowledge and practice of their faith and to be of service to the Parish and wider community while supporting one another. With a focus on growing in our faith and spirituality, helping the community, and supporting charitable groups the girls grow a lifelong relationship with Mary and friends.
Other things the girls participate in are plays, talent shows, and singing in convalescent homes during the Christmas season. Headed by the Salesian Sisters (Daughters of Mary Help of Christians) our Marian's club is an invaluable opportunity to grow closer to Mother Mary.
The Decathlon is an academic competition held annually by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles each March. This year, approximately one hundred Catholic schools from throughout the Archdiocese will have teams of students in grades 6 – 8. There are ten events.
Two are collaborative team efforts – a logic quiz with 20 rigorous thinking problems, and a super quiz with 50 multiple choice questions on five broad academic themes. The remaining eight events test individual knowledge of the Roman Catholic doctrine, English and spelling, Literature, Science, Mathematics, Current Events, Social Studies, and Fine Arts (music and art).
All incoming 6- 8 graders can apply to Student Council.
The students that meet the requirement are allowed to campaign and are placed on the ballot. The school holds an election and every student has the opportunity to vote.
Student Council is in charge of organizing countless events and fundraisers throughout the school year.
