Student Life

Signature Activities

Signature Activities are weaved into high school student life. These activities are what bring school spirit into the day-to-day learning, and which is an integral part of social development for teens. Opportunities include a blend of tradition, choice and social responsibility development. The teen years are a time of rapid change and growth, teens feel strongly about many topics and often want to have a positive impact or make change happen. There are many opportunities for our students to develop their community connections and social activism interests. We are always open to new initiatives and ideas that motivate our students to do more.
