Extracurricular Activities

Each school has its own set of extracurricular activities. These are activities that are held before or after school and not part of usual school course work. There are often additional costs and fees, and they can involve a lot of time for students and their families.

Those activities may include:

  • Sports: American football, baseball, swimming, tennis, soccer.
  • Clubs: can be for sports, academics, arts, social issues or community projects.
  • Cheerleading: teams of male and female students perform cheers and dance routines at sports events.
  • Music and theater: marching bands, choirs, jazz bands, single performances, as well as theater programs for groups and individuals.
  • Academic competitions.
  • Newspaper or yearbook

Schools may have information on extracurricular activities online. If they do not have a list of activities on their web page, call them and ask to speak to someone who would know about the subject.
