Home to over fifty clubs, the Upper School offers students the opportunity to engage their learning, passions, and curiosity well beyond the classroom. From cultivating the nectar from GA's own swarm of honey bees (Apiary Club) and mastering the Danish Gambit (Chess Club), to exploring the bounds of the known universe (Modern Cosmology Club) and debating current social and political issues (Think Club), the range of opportunities truly speaks to our students' diverse interests. Most importantly, the list of clubs is ever-evolving, reflecting the student body's desire to continually explore alternatives that speak to their wants and their passions.
