UPrep has taught me so much about who I am as a person. When I questioned my identity back in Middle School, I was never once worried. Instead, I was curious, and UPrep provided the spaces to feed that curiosity. Now, I am a co-leader of the Queer Student Union and extremely open about my identity, something that I could only have done with the support from my teachers and friends.” –Current Upper School student
At UPrep, with over 20 clubs offered at any given time, there are limitless opportunities for students to explore their passions outside the classroom and connect with others who share them.
Among the many clubs offered in the Middle School are Dance Club, Goalie Club, Ancient & Historical Weapons Club, and Robotics Club. Some are organized by faculty members. Other clubs are suggested and run by students with guidance from faculty advisors, covering a wide range of topics from Flexibility to Chess to Dungeons and Dragons.
In Upper School, clubs reflect a wide range of interests, from social justice to pop culture, hiking to international relations, public speaking to 3D printing. Clubs are entirely student-run, and student leaders work with a faculty advisor to plan club meetings (usually held during Community Time) and activities.
New clubs can be proposed by a student at any time, but some longstanding clubs include Mock Trial, the Queer Student Union, Tailgate Club, Students of Service, Sustainability Club, and the Black Student Union.
