Clubs & Student Organizations

Student activities function through various organized classes, clubs, and organizations.

Faculty and administration desire to continually strive to provide students with well-balanced activities and a program allowing for social interaction, community involvement, academic research, and leadership experiences. Our goal is to continually perpetuate within students a strong sense of responsibility, honor, loyalty, and cooperation toward their school. Student activities will motivate and develop students’ ability to plan, conduct meetings, and evaluate their efforts.

FAU High School students have the best of all worlds - an intimate high school campus and a thriving research university. No two Owls are exactly the same, and we offer clubs and activities to reflect that diversity. Among the 40+ groups at FAU High School, and the  over 400 groups  at Florida Atlantic University, there’s something, or maybe two or three “somethings”, for everyone.
