Due to our commitment to developing individual passions and interests, we offer a wide variety of experiences for students both before school and after school. Our Extracurricular catalog boasts over 50 activities to choose from each semester, and there is truly something for everyone.
Our 2020-2021 Extracurriculars schedule is under review pending regulations and guidelines for the academic year.
