Our student clubs’ policies are designed to foster student-led learning spaces that encourage students to embrace curiosity and self-directed learning. 


Most parents worry about whether involvement in extracurricular activities and organizations at school  could lead to poor academic performance. The opposite may in fact be true. Studies show a positive co-relationship between students’ academic performance and students’ engagement at school. 


It is true that students who perform well academically are also just more likely to be engaged in extracurricular activities at school. That said, extracurricular involvement is incredibly important for those students who still need to improve on their academic performance. The knowledge, skills and attitudes gained in activities outside the classroom — e.g. the ability to collaborate in, work in and lead teams, the ability to form opinions and express oneself, the realization that one can enjoy productive pursuits and learning, etc. — do contribute to students’ ability to participate in their own learning inside the classroom.


Scholastica dissuades students who still need to work on their academic performance from taking up leadership positions, but otherwise encourages all students to be actively engaged at school.


Do react out to student affairs if you have questions.
