|Girl Talk||Girl Talk is a group designed for the empowerment of the girls of Cristo Rey Newark High School. We provide support and guidance for girls to build a sisterhood. Founded by two juniors — who were determined to create a safe environment for girls to share their triumphs, mistakes and insecurities, without judgement. Girl Talk is an enrichment group for girls — we explore and provide opportunities for personal growth and develop leadership skills.||Mrs. Jenny Campbell|
|K-Club||Korean Club is an educational club that encourages students to participate in discussions and organize events and activities related to Korean culture and heritage, along with Korean national holidays.||Ms. Grace Park|
|National Honor Society||The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.||Mr. Edward Curtis|
|Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica — Spanish Honor Society||Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH) is an academic honor society focused on Spanish language excellence in secondary education and promotes a continuity of interest in Spanish studies. Its motto is “¡Todos a una!” (“All Together for One Goal”). The group, which was established in 1953 in the United States, is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese. Each chapter has its own unique name, which is associated with some aspect of the Spanish or Portuguese culture. Each society member must have taken three semesters of Spanish or Portuguese. He/she is required to maintain an “honor grade” or GPA, which correlates with the society‘s mission of high academic achievement. Cristo Rey Newark High School students are inducted into the Julia Alvarez Chapter.||TBD|
