35 Unique High School Club Ideas to Start at Your School

Clubs and organizations in high school are awesome because they give you opportunities to explore your passions, connect with others who have similar interests, and have fun! If your high school doesn’t have a club or organization that you’re interested in, the best thing to do is start your own. Get creative and think outside of the box.

High school clubs and extracurricular activities typically fall into one of three categories:

  • Subject Area – Clubs that focus on specific academic subjects.
  • Hobby Clubs – Clubs that focus on specific hobbies or interests
  • Community Service – Clubs that focus on making an impact in the community.
