Clubs & Organizations

As an Upper School student, you’ll enjoy a wide variety of opportunities to connect with like-minded others in our student clubs and organizations. Get involved in clubs linked to academics (such as Math Club or Latin Club), the arts (such as Voices of the Knight or Knightingales a capella singing groups), global issues (such as Asian Cultural Society or Model U.N.), helping the community (such as a host of community service and environmental initiatives), and other topics. Run for student government. Write for The Spectator (arts and literature), Perspective (yearbook), or The Vanguard, our award-winning student newspaper. And if you can’t find a club you like, come up with a good idea and we’ll help you start one.

In virtually every area of student life at BB&N, we encourage self-reliance, knowledge of oneself and a capacity for leadership.

Student Government

One of the most fertile areas for exploring and building leadership skills is student government. In the regular operations of student government, students meet in grade councils to oversee each class, and representatives from all classes meet weekly in the Student Council. With two faculty members and the Dean of Students, they discuss issues of concern to the Upper School and make recommendations to the Director. Students do not determine School policy, but their opinions and proposals on student life issues are taken seriously. Their suggestions are put forward at a student summit in which student leaders review their proposals with administrators every month.

Senior Prefects

Each year the faculty and outgoing Prefects help select a group of Senior Prefects to support the School and the Student Council in encouraging a high moral tone and stimulating School spirit. Selection is an honor made on the promise or proof of leadership.

Clubs & Activities

Many extracurricular programs are available at BB&N. Some demand a substantial commitment of time; some are single events. All give students the opportunity to learn new skills, follow special interests, and meet students from other grades. These activities also give students and faculty the chance to cooperate on a unique basis. Activities are not required, but we encourage all students to participate.
