      Large group of students starting a run on campus

There’s something for everyone at SPS. You can participate in more than 70 clubs and societies, ranging from debate and robotics to gospel choir and fly-fishing. Clubs are a vibrant part of school life. Some clubs are long-standing, like the Missionary Society, The Pelican, or the Debate Team. Others are representative of current student interest and student action. If you are motivated to create a club to explore any facet of interest to you, it will find a home at SPS. Below is a sampling of some of our clubs currently offered.

List of 18 items.
