Destination Imagination

DI is a volunteer-led, educational non-profit organization that teaches 21st century skills to kindergarten through university level students through creative and collaborative problem solving challenges. Team members work together to develop a solution to one of 7 open-ended challenges and present their solutions at tournaments. Through the Challenge program, students learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation and learn skills needed to succeed in school, career and life, including teamwork, communication, project management, perseverance, creative and critical thinking, and self-confidence. Team sign ups are in early September.

Student Government

Each grade, 9-12, elects its own officers: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The class officers are responsible for different functions, ranging from service projects to homecoming activities. Officers are elected by the students at the end of each academic year to serve the following academic year. All class officers and student council officers are required to purchase uniform pieces as designated by the class or student council sponsor.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes

FCA's mission is to present to athletes and coaches, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church. FCA meets every other Thursday at 7:00am in the gym. You do not have to be an athlete to participate.
