24/7 Community

Clubs & Organizations

At Episcopal students are encouraged and supported as they identify, enjoy, explore, and commit to their personal interests and passions. There are a wide variety of clubs and activities designed for this purpose. Students find that joining a club is a great way to get involved in campus life, to meet other students, and, of course, to simply have fun.

Curiosity and wonder are pursuits we honor and strive to inspire. They feed a love of learning and dedication to personal growth that continues into adulthood and precipitate some of the most enduring lessons learned outside of the classroom.

Student Leadership 2024-25

EHS emphasizes leadership skills in all areas of student life. Student leadership has become a tradition at Episcopal that engages students at many levels, including formal opportunities, such as the Monitor System, the Honor Committee, and the Vestry.

List of 10 items.

  • Activities Committee

    The student Activities Committee is a team of EHS students that work together, in conjunction with the full faculty activities committee, to plan and orchestrate various social activities that meet the needs and desires of our diverse population of students.
  • Cheerleaders

    The EHS Cheerleaders promote pride through tradition. They strive to inspire students to encourage and support others on and off the field. The cheerleaders lead by example and create a legacy through positive actions.
  • Community Council

    The Community Council is a student-driven organization dedicated to improving the student experience by acting as a liaison between the student body and administration and providing bonding opportunities for the entire community.
  • EHS Ambassadors

    Each year, rising juniors and seniors may apply to become EHS Ambassadors for the admissions office. Applicants are then selected by an admissions committee to hold these leadership positions. Ambassadors are responsible for greeting families on move-in day, sending out tour requests, confirming tour guides on a daily basis, giving weekly tours, assisting with open house and revisit days, and giving tours to prospective families and alumni.
  • Monitors

    On the basis of student and faculty nominations and an application process, the Headmaster appoints a number of seniors to be Monitors of the School. The group then nominates one to be the Head Monitor and two or more to be Senior Monitors. These students are expected to lead the rest of the student body “by precept and example,” and are also expected to help the faculty uphold school rules. To be appointed a Monitor is a mark of respect by the community, and the manner in which the Monitors carry out their dormitory and school-wide responsibilities affect the tone of the School.

  • Prefects

    Prefects are a group of fully invested juniors devoted to providing strong dorm-based engagement and mentorship. Prefects are ready to do the difficult work of helping our new students adjust to life at boarding school, as well as build strong dorm communities in Anderson and Hummel dorms. Prefects provide a sense of stability, camaraderie, and community on dorm, including how residential life can be leveraged to build healthy relationships amongst students, as well as between students and adults.

  • Service Council

    The Service Council facilitates and coordinates service opportunities for students. The council finds ways to reach out to both domestic and international communities and provides financial support to maintain lasting partnerships. In doing so, they challenge the student body to get involved and share in the joy of service.
  • Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

    The S.A.A.C. serves as a liaison between athletic teams and the EHS administration, as well as between athletics and the entire student body. The group works to facilitate conversations about issues regarding athletics and how athletes are represented within the larger community. Members of S.A.A.C. work actively work to build a sense of community and encourage sportsmanship in all facets of EHS life as well as a positive student-athlete image on campus. This committee provides a forum for discussion where members can provide valuable insights into different athletic issues. Their contributions help to guide the athletic department in shaping department policies. The S.A.A.C meets with members of the athletic department periodically throughout the year.

  • Vestry

    The Vestry challenges our community to particpate in all aspects of chapel life at EHS and creates opportunities for students to question their beliefs in a safe environment. In addition, the group supports the work of the chapel and the various student roles within it.

  • Young Alumni Leadership Program (YALP)

    Every year, rising seniors may apply to be part of the Young Alumni Leadership Program (YALP). Members of YALP work with the EHS Advancement Office to learn how they can support the School once they graduate and what opportunities will be available to them as alumni. YALP members use what they learn to educate their fellow seniors about the importance of staying connected to The High School after graduation through volunteering, attending alumni events, career networking, and giving to the Roll Call. Members of YALP cap off the year by leading the senior class fundraising effort and hosting an end-of-year dinner for their classmates.

Student Clubs

Episcopal incorporates time for clubs into students’ weekly schedules. There are countless activities designed to entertain and enrich life beyond the classroom. Students can join an array of student-run clubs, organizations, and student publications, allowing them to explore their interests and passions; develop new skills; make new friends; give back to the School or local community; and simply have fun with their peers. Don’t see a club that's right for you? Maybe you’ll start your own!
