35 Unique High School Club Ideas to Start at Your School

Being involved with clubs in high school is awesome because they give you opportunities to explore your passions, connect with others who have similar interests, and have fun! Interested in joining a club but not seeing one at your high school that you’re interested in? You can start your own! Get creative and think outside of the box!

Types of high school clubs

High school clubs typically fall into one of three categories:

  • Subject area – Clubs that focus on specific academic subjects, like math or writing.
  • Hobby – Clubs that focus on specific hobbies or interests, like Fortnite or crocheting.
  • Community service – Clubs that focus on making an impact in the community, like volunteering at a local food bank.
