Eagles Edge

What is Eagles Edge? This program was created to enhance the educational experience at Santa Margarita Catholic High School by offering real-life experiences that are not typically taught inside a classroom. According to President Andy Sulick '91, Eagles Edge is creating a culture of Eagles helping Eagles for years to come. All current and alumni Eagles are encouraged to participate in the robust network that Santa Margarita Catholic High School has to offer. 
 
In conjunction with Eagles Edge is the Eagles Edge Mentor Club which helps students to kick-start to their college and professional careers by working closely with the members of the Eagles Edge committee and professionals in our community. Contact Garrett Domier for more information at garrett.domier@smhsstudents.org.
 
Eagles Edge is comprised of the following areas:
