In the Middle and Upper School, student individuality finds expression in a variety of clubs. Any motivated student can find the faculty support and the freedom to pursue his interests – ensuring student life reflects the spirit and enthusiasm of our community. Active campus clubs include Ar-Cade-Ia, Chapel Committee, Community Service, Culinary Society, Film Club, French Club, Spanish Club, National Honor Society, Outing Club, Quiz Bowl, Rugby and Yearbook.
Built into the Lower School curricula are enrichment clusters, group activities that build on the core subjects and provide opportunities for in-depth exploration. Students of different grade levels work together to investigate their chosen subjects. Students participate in two to three enrichment activities during the school year, and topics change based on student interest.
Enrichment clusters cover topics ranging from Lego robotics to the study of animals to mosaics. In the enrichment groups, students drive the projects. They design the units and divide the tasks amongst themselves. Not only do the activities provide time to learn concepts in depth, they also teach the students about making choices and living with those choices, and about working with other students of similar interests but varying abilities.
