Student clubs allow students to pursue, explore and share interests with other like-minded

  • Learn about our student driven clubs.

    How do students join a club?

    Students can join a club by signing up at club day at the beginning of the school year or simply showing up to a meeting.

    Can you join at any time during the school year?

    All clubs are open to all students year round. This allows students join, change or participate in multiple clubs that meet on the same days. For example, if the Mock Trail Club and the Weightlfting Club meets every Tuesday, one week a student will attend one and the next week they will attend the other.

    When do clubs meet?

    Most clubs meet weekly or biweekly during the lunch period in the advisors classroom. Some clubs, like mock trial, do have off site activities from time to time but regular meetings are always on campus.

We believe that in order to create safe and healthy environments, women must be given a seat at all tables where decisions are being made. We intend to foster and support sustainable change dedicated to providing more than just life for all women, both globally and locally. Our goal is to create a culture on campus that values and respects the voice of women at Terra Nova. In addition, we intend to utilize our privilege and collective power to dedicate our time to the causes, including providing feminine hygiene products and fundraising initiatives that help members of our school and local community and seek to understand the plight of and offer support to women at a national and global scale. We vow to uncover the ways in which our liberation is bound in one another’s. All are welcome to join our cause.
