Clubs and Activities

Co-curricular activities are an integral part of the student development at EARJ. These activities help build the main components of character – trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. We challenge our students and performers to do their best, while at the same time help develop social responsibility, excellent sportsmanship and a high standard of ethical behavior.


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.

 


Academic Traveling Teams

An academic, competitive and interscholastic event where two teams compete head-to-head to answer questions from all general areas of knowledge including history, literature, science, fine arts, current events, sports, popular culture, and more. One defining feature of any Knowledge Bowl is the buzzer system used by students to “buzz in” when they believe they can answer a question. Players may interrupt the reading of a question through the use of their buzzer when they believe they know the correct answer. This buzzer system makes it almost game-show like quality, which makes it more fun and engaging for students and audience alike.

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.
