Clubs & Activities

The educational experience at SCHS goes beyond academics. We believe student participation in clubs and activities builds confidence, leadership, and lifelong friendships. Get involved!

CIS Academy

CIS Academy is a Communities In Schools (CIS) initiative that is an in-school youth development program. Students may participate in this program by teacher or counselor recommendation only.

Students learn effective behavioral strategies and life skills through participation in small classes, support services, and enrichment experiences. These activities prepare students for careers, teach financial literacy, and encourage students to become productive and contributing citizens.
