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.
