On the High School Campus, clubs and activities offer opportunities for students to follow their passion through extracurricular life. Students participate in clubs that represent a variety of interests, such as service club, robotics, literary magazine and garden club. In addition to the clubs, students can establish and participate in student organizations. To start an organization, students file a charter, find a sponsor, and submit a proposal to the Head of High School. A Club Fair held in the fall offers students the opportunity to learn about the clubs and join their favorites. View the descriptions and pictures below to learn more about the variety of activities on campus.
Involvement in extracurricular activities is a very important part of life at Ensworth.
