School Extracurriculars: A Cornerstone of Bethany School


From chess club and robotics to drum circle and dance, there’s something for every Bethany School student to get involved in!

With more than 25 offerings, our extracurricular program encourages students to explore new interests, discover their place in the world around them, and build friendships with their peers. Most extracurriculars take place on campus after school, but some are held off campus. 

Below is a sample of some recent offerings. Activities are announced in the weekly Bluehawks Blasts.

Extracurricular Programs at Bethany School

Do extracurriculars matter? Yes! Extracurricular activities offer students the opportunity to grow, learn, and explore beyond the classroom.  Whether your child is passionate about sports, music, art, or STEM, there’s something here for everyone.

From basketball and volleyball to track and field, golf, music lessons, art, drama, and even mosaic making! Plus, students can get involved with chess, cutting-edge STEM classes, robotics, fencing, 3D printing, stock market games, mock trials, and more!

Beyond the Classroom: The Value of Extracurriculars

Choosing a school with an extensive extracurricular program can give your child the opportunity to build essential skills that complement their academic learning. While many schools downplay the value of extracurriculars, Bethany sees them as an integral part of learning.

Our programs in sports, arts, and community engagement are tailored to nurture teamwork, creativity, and resilience among our students. Extracurricular involvement enables students to learn to take on leadership roles while building a strong resume for their high school and college applications.
