Procedure for Starting a New Club:

  • High school students may start their own club by proposing their idea to Student Government at an informal meeting. They may have an interest meeting for their club prior to or after attending an informal meeting. Once interest has been demonstrated and the club has been proposed and approved at a formal meeting, the club may begin operating.
  • Information to provide to Student Government about your club:
    • Teacher sponsor, potential meeting dates, fees and budget (if necessary), which grades the club is available to, and the activities and goals of the club.
  • If you have any further questions on starting a club or would like to attend an informal SGA meeting to propose your club, please contact:

 

We encourage all high school students to start and participate in any clubs they are interested in.

Dead Poets Society is a club aimed at the enjoyment and appreciation of poetry. Each week we will look at different forms of poetry, each member bringing in a selection which we will compare and contrast, discussing our thoughts and opinions. This club will also seek to facilitate creative writing of all kinds, mainly by holding seminars and workshops in which students share and discuss their writing. These workshops will be open to 6th through 8th graders in addition to high schoolers. In the words of John Keating: “We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.”

FILM APPRECIATION CLUB

The mission of the Film Appreciation Club is to analyze and appreciate film. In this club, we will learn the true and love the beautiful by examining different films. Our goal is to cultivate a love and understanding of film as a whole. Learning about new ideas will help us develop a better perspective of ourselves and the world around us. By finding beauty through film, we can spark joy both individually and as a group, through discussion.

QUIZ BOWL CLUB

Quiz Bowl is a quiz-based competition that tests players on a wide variety of academic subjects. Standardized quiz bowl formats are played by lower school, middle school, high school, and university students throughout the United States, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Asia, and the United Kingdom. The game is typically played with a lockout buzzer system between at least two teams, usually consisting of four or five players each. A moderator reads questions to the players, who try to score points for their team by buzzing first and responding with the correct answer. Quiz bowl is most commonly played in a toss-up/bonus format, which consists of a series of two different types of questions. Other formats, particularly in local competitions, may deviate from the above rules. (New members must memorize and recite this description in order to be admitted).

SAILING CLUB

Sailing is one of the fastest-growing sports in the U.S. and is one of the few that is co-educational. The only requirement is the ability to swim and the desire to have fun on the water. Experienced members typically travel to four-five regattas per year within the SAISA district (Georgia and South Carolina).
