Extracurricular Activities

AthleticsWhile academics are the key to success in college and beyond, American universities favor students who are also active and/or take leadership roles in school activities and in providing service to the community. It is important to show that a student is well-rounded as a person as well as academically excellent. All students are expected to complete a minimum of 20 hours of community service and are encouraged to participate in a sport or activity each academic year.

Involvement in activities allows students to become better acquainted with both faculty and their peers. By being involved in high school activities, students can gain skills such as time management, interpersonal communication, teamwork and leadership.

After-school endeavors include the following clubs and activities:

  • Art
  • Band
  • Drama and Musicals
  • Forensics
  • Newspaper
  • Service Groups
  • Yearbook
  • Student Government
  • National Honor Society

Community service activities may include volunteering at local animal shelters or senior citizen centers, working with children who have disabilities, or participating in environmental projects such as tree-planting or tending to a community garden. Students are encouraged to explore other community service activities that are of interest to them.
