As early as Lower School, students have the opportunity to engage in activities and projects of their choice (groups with same interests) and develop their potential supported by a teacher advisor.
In the Upper School there are over 20 clubs and activities available for students to choose from. These clubs are either school sponsored or student-initiated and range from social awareness projects to a more technical approach, like the Robotics Club, Finance, Mathematics, Innovation, Reading, Movies, Digital Arts, Honor Societies, and more.
After School Activities Program
The After School Activities (A.S.A.) program is designed to develop and complement EARJ’s academic program. There is a wide range of activities offered every semester, which includes soccer, basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, cheerleading, jiu-jitsu, guitar, computer programming, Lego robotics, cooking, band, drama, jazz, ballet, rock climbing, Capoeira, art, crafts, and entrepreneurship and literacy programs for kids. These activities run for one more hour after school hours and have a monthly fee.
Students at EARJ develop essential communication, leadership, and collaboration skills through teamwork while they prepare for their MUN conferences and Destination Imagination, MathCounts and Knowledge Bowl tournaments.
A global educational nonprofit dedicated to inspiring the next generation of innovators, leaders and creative problem solvers. At EARJ, Lower and Middle School students work hard on open-ended challenges that involve STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) and service learning.
Model United Nations, also known as MUN, is a simulation of the United Nations Organization, where students represent committees and delegations that exist in the UN, debating economic, humanitarian and world safety issues. Students voice not their own opinions on the matter, but the foreign policy of the country they represent as a delegation. This extracurricular activity englobes the development of leadership skills, group work, oratory and creation of political projects and resolutions. More than that, MUN helps students to develop their intellect and to mature their perception of the challenges that the world presents them as well as their role in transforming it.
MATHCOUNTS is an American enrichment club and competition program that inspires excellence, confidence, and curiosity in mathematics that reaches students in Grades 6 to 8.
