Student Clubs & Affinity/Alliance Groups
Our high school boasts an extensive array of student clubs that cater to diverse interests, spanning from pre-medical pursuits to environmental activism, and from entrepreneurial endeavors to the realm of business. Additionally, our high school is home to the student-produced literary magazine The Glass Knife. Whether you're passionate about health sciences, dedicated to preserving the environment, nurturing a flair for business, or inclined towards literary expression, our diverse range of clubs ensures that every student can find a community where their passions can flourish. And if there is a club that doesn't yet exist—create it!
Club offerings change every year based on student interest, but here is a sampling of clubs you can find in the high school:
- Quiz Bowl
- Art Club
- Environmentalist Club
- Country Day Business Club
- Muslim Student Association
- Coding Club
- Movies & Tea Club
- Pre-Med Club
- Outdoor Club

Alliance and Affinity Groups
Affinity groups create a space where participants can share identity and experiences. These group meetings can help students to feel more visible and more included in our community and in doing so they enhance our commitment to inclusiveness. Starting in the 2023-24 school year, we will work to provide organizational support for affinity groups in the high school. Our high school students have already met for initial interest sessions and to choose student leaders for the affinity group pilot program.
Affinity vs. alliance groups
Both affinity and alliance groups are intended to bring people together by forging deeper bonds of community. An affinity group is a space reserved for people who share an identity or life experience. An alliance group might be organized and led by people who share an identity, but allies are welcome to join. Both groups are intended to foster inclusion and belonging on our campus, and in doing so enhance our commitment to inclusivity.
