The Upper School maintains an active club program, the goals of which are to provide leadership opportunities for students, to allow for student-initiated and student-directed activities, to foster a sense of belonging and unity, and to provide a team approach to learning. Existing clubs include but are not limited to ones that focus on the arts, diversity, politics, service, social justice, and technology.
Clubs are monitored by the Upper School Administration and the Upper School Student Council, and are sponsored by a member or members of the faculty or staff. All clubs are open to all students. Clubs are required to meet once per quarter either before school, after school, during lunch periods, or during Y periods.
In order for a club to exist on campus, a completed application must be submitted by the annual September deadline. A club fair takes place annually during the month of September. All approved clubs will recruit new members during this fair. Students have the opportunity to join clubs at the fair, as well as throughout the year.
