Leadership Opportunities

There are opportunities for C/A Middle School students to develop leadership skills, including participation in the Model United National Club, which sends a student delegation to local MUN conferences. Students may also choose to nominate themselves to serve on the Middle School Student Leadership Council. Student representatives on the Council provide ideas and input on a variety of school programs and topics. 

 

Weekly Clubs

Time is set aside every Friday from 2:15 p.m. – 3:40 p.m. for Middle and High School students and faculty to join together as they explore interests and aptitudes outside of the classroom. The Clubs offered each year are based on student interest and tend to focus on recreational athletics and activities, sports, and fine arts and performing arts. Students can create their own clubs. All it takes is a realistic plan, four other interested students, and a faculty sponsor. Participation in some clubs, such as C/A sports teams, can earn High School credit.

Recent clubs include:

Cross Country
Basketball
Cheerleading
Flag Football
Soccer
Volleyball
Art
Guitar and Music

Community Service

Students are encouraged and required to give back to their community through volunteer service. Doing so helps them to learn about their broader communities and ways of life other than their own.

C/A provides opportunities for students to complete community service but students are also encouraged to seek out opportunities in their own community.

High School students are required to complete 10 hours of community service per year of attendance at C/A.
