Student Life

Clubs & Spirit

Spirit
College Prep is infused with school spirit (and Cougar Pride) through twice weekly student-led assemblies, theme days like Farm Day and Snow Day, fall and spring spirit weeks, and the more than 40 clubs on campus. We integrate work and play, helping students embrace the elements of a balanced life.
Student-led clubs and interest groups thrive on campus. 
Traditional offerings sit alongside some that you might find only here. Early in the year the school holds a Clubs Fair so that students can learn about and join the clubs that interest them. Have an idea for a club or interest group not mentioned below? Start your own!
