Clubs

A club is defined as a student-initiated, maintained, driven and inclusive group that continuously and consistently aligns itself with the Christ-centered goals, vision and purpose of JSerra. Further, these groups may choose to affiliate with a larger, national non-profit organization, but must keep in mind that this larger organization must fall within the same regimented scope as stated above.

Types of Clubs

  1. Service, which focuses on the welfare of a group or communities through health, education, etc.
  2. Extracurricular, which focuses on enhancing academics
  3. Social, which focuses on cultivating school spirit or strengthening student camaraderie

Starting a Club

To start a club, students must ask a teacher to moderate the club (thereby supervising meetings, events, and activities), complete an application form with the club moderator, submit fundraising ideas to the Advancement office, and begin meeting and making new friends. (Current students may click here for more information.)

Nearly 98% of all JSerra students participate in at least one club. We encourage students to explore their hobbies and goals by joining a club that appeals to their interests. With nearly 50 clubs, there's something for everyone.
Donna Vandenberg, Vice Principal of Student Life
