SJA is happy to offer over 20 NEW clubs and activities for our students! Since EVERY girl belongs to a club or activity, we have moved most of our club meetings to every Friday during the school day. Clubs meet every Friday during ROAR time, with the exception of clubs like RoboChix Robotics and a few others. Whether it is cooking, gaming, or photography club, all of our selected clubs and activities reflect our students and their interests. Each school year, we update what is included on our Clubs and Activities list based on student's specific interests. Browse the list below to find out which clubs are offered for the 2019-2020 school year!
