Extracurriculars

Peer interaction is alive and well at Provost Academy, and in fact, many students report getting to know peers in their online community whom they would have never met otherwise because of social or geographic barriers. Students interact regularly in their live classes and tutoring sessions, and have opportunities to work on group projects and discussions. Contributing to class blogs and forums is another great way for students to interact, express their opinions, and learn from others in a less formal environment than a classroom.

These clubs plan events, activities, field trips and projects that foster interest and exploration. Provost Academy students create a yearbook each year, and we encourage students to pursue activities such as sports, dance, music, and volunteering. We also encourage students to participate in activities through local organizations outside of school. See the descriptions of our 2014-15 Clubs here!
