UPrep 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. During high school, I was co-leader of the Queer Student Union and I was extremely open about my identity, something that I could only have done with support from my teachers and friends.” –2023 UPrep Graduate
At UPrep, with more than 20 clubs offered at any given time, there are limitless opportunities for students to explore their passions outside the classroom and form connections with their peers.
UPrep's Middle School students have opportunities to participate in clubs during our daily, one-hour Community Time. Some clubs are student-generated, while others are formed by faculty or staff. There are several standing clubs that convene year after year under the guidance of a faculty member, including Debate Club and the Gender & Sexuality Alliance (GSA). Other clubs, like Dungeons and Dragons or the Boba Tea Club, are created through student interest. Students are able to present their club idea, arrange for a faculty/staff advisor, and promote their club at weekly announcements. Student-driven clubs have varied life spans and new clubs are created all year long!

UPrep's Upper School students can participate in a wide variety of clubs (usually 30 to 40) that vary from year-to-year based on student interest. Long-standing clubs include Mock Trial, Students of Service, Opera Club, Debate Club, and the Creative Arts Society. New clubs can be proposed by a student at any time, and clubs reflect a range of interests, from social justice, international relations and public speaking to hiking, pop culture, and 3D printing. All clubs have a faculty advisor and meet during Community Time.
