Activities & Clubs

School children learning with iPads

The middle school offers several in-day club options for all students. Clubs are sponsored by faculty and students have the opportunity to explore new offerings each semester. Clubs are a vibrant and vital part of our school culture and ethos. It is well documented that play and pro-social opportunities are an important part of the development of the middle school student, and offering our clubs during the day on selected Wednesdays gives both students and teachers an opportunity for fun, relationship building, and a way to explore and further develop passions.

ACT 2 provides focused and rigorous acting and stage training for theatre students as they prepare drama pieces for presentation in chapels and at outside events including competition at the North Carolina Theater Conference (NCTC) in the spring and the Wingate Shakespeare Recitation Competition.
