Student Leadership & Engagement

Do you want to build connections, discover new passions, develop leadership skills or give back to Bay community? Whether you’re helping to lead Admissions events or Athletics, planning a party in School Life Committee or performing with the Jazz Club, you’re sure to connect with students and teachers, explore what you love, and love who you become. A vast majority of students participate in one or more club organizations.
