Upper School Clubs & Activities

The Upper School’s Co-Curricular program is designed to develop leadership skills in emerging global citizens.

By strengthening individual leadership skills, and by empowering our students to take on meaningful leadership, our students develop the fundamental skills to participate actively in the Wheeler community to grow as engaged citizens of the world.

Opportunity: Beyond the curriculum

Wheeler offers a myriad of organizations for students who wish to pursue interests outside of our academic course offerings. Each activity, publication, and club is advised by a member of the Wheeler faculty and is supported by all available school resources. We are dedicated to ensuring that all co-curricular opportunities are available to all our students, irrespective of financial need, through the financial support of the Carrie Waters ’86 Memorial Fund.
