Clubs & Extracurriculars
Extracurricular opportunities abound at Prep and many students are actively involved in more than one club or activity. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in activities that will develop their social, academic and cultural interests. Under the guidance of a faculty moderator, these activities are meant to foster a better sense of community among students across the different grades. Students may also have the opportunity to create a new club if there is ample interest.
