The Club experience is designed to empower young people to develop into engaged, thoughtful, and motivated leaders. Students regularly call on the New Basics — creative-problem solving, collaboration, iteration, visual communication, empathy, tech & media literacy, and presentation skills — for their ideas come to life. Faculty advisors help create the conditions in which students can explore their interests and delve deeper into their ideas.

All Clubs meet once per week on Tuesdays at 10:10 – 10:40 a.m. and often outside of that time to work on additional projects. If you were to stop by during Club block you might see students planning trips, preparing speeches, advocating for change, presenting to large audiences, or collaborating with other Clubs. Club leaders attend workshops designed by the Hiatt Center to strengthen leadership skills, set achievable goals, and support the overall development of the individuals and Club. Staff in the Hiatt Center are also available to students for regular consultation.

Club Application and Sign Up Process

Clubs are designed by and led by students. They can run for the entire school-year or by term. Students have the opportunity to apply for the creation of a new Club at the beginning of each term. Likewise, students may choose to stay in one Club for the entire year or switch into different Clubs for fall, winter, and spring terms. A signup form is sent to students at the beginning of each term.
