Clubs & Activities
Our students are often thirsty for more. Just because the final bell rings doesn’t mean we are finished. Extracurricular programming provides exciting opportunities for our students to try new activities or delve deeper into areas of passion.
Get involved. Have fun!
Students participate in, lead, and even create school clubs based on their unique interests and talents. Our ever-changing list of dozens of clubs and activities across campus offers students abundant opportunities to explore their passions and discover new ones, and to connect and have fun with peers and faculty who share similar interests.

Hmong Club is a student-lead cultural club for students at Arndt Middle School to celebrate Hmong heritage. We create educational materials for the school, plan cultural events for students, play games, attend field trips, and generally become more connected with like-minded students. If there is enough interest and leadership, a dance team is facilitated among our club members. We value teaching our club members leadership, self-advocacy, and tolerance.

North Carolina Science Olympiad (NCSO) is a nonprofit organization with the mission to attract and retain the pool of K-12 students entering science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) degrees and careers in North Carolina. Every year NCSO hosts tournaments on university, community college, and public school campuses across the state. These tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of different hands-on, interactive, challenging and inquiry-based events that are well balanced between the various disciplines of biology, earth science, environmental science, chemistry, physics, engineering and technology.
In 2018, more than 980 K-12 teams representing over 18,000 students and 85 counties in North Carolina participated in NCSO activities. NCSO is indebted to the thousands of volunteers that donate their time each year to making our activities a success.
The challenging and self-motivating events of NCSO align with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study as well as the National Science Education Standards. The events are designed to enhance and strengthen both science content and process skills.
