Clubs

Clubs

Our online clubs are a key part of our virtual school community, deepening relationships and providing students with the opportunity to work collaboratively. Clubs offer our students the opportunity to socialize with other students who share the same interests, talents and goals. Students gather in a stimulating, inviting and secure online environment, where they can talk to each other in real time and dive more deeply into subjects that interest them. Students work together on club projects and activities, with the guidance of experienced, dynamic teachers. Examples of clubs which may be active at any given time are described below:
