These clubs are anchored on the school’s educational objectives and set of standards. The Student Council coordinates major activities of the school clubs except for Quantum Leap (campus journalism).
As part of the requirements for college admission application, certification, recommendation, and extra and co-curricular activity records, all Grade 7-12 students are required to join and actively participate in at least two (2) school clubs.
