It is our hope that all students at Ninth Grade Academy will choose to be a part of one of our extracurricular activities. Certainly, academic classes are our focus, but research has found that students involved in athletics and other school sponsored organizations tend to perform better academically. We feel that it also serves as a way for students to identify and develop skills and interests in a way that they cannot in classrooms alone. In fact, colleges often expect to see evidence of participation in extracurricular activities during the college admissions process. We encourage you to take some time to explore the opportunities we offer.
You may be interested in our athletic programs which bring new opportunities each season. Some students also like to take part in our clubs and non-athletic teams. Some of these serve to enhance classes students take during the regular day, while others may be service or honor societies. Some activities meet very frequently; others monthly. Some involve interscholastic competitions with other schools; while others work primarily within the Pike community. Many students find benefit from multiple sports and clubs; it's all about finding your niche.
With over 30 extracurricular activities available, there is a place for each student to find a home.
