Leadership Opportunities & Clubs
FJA students demonstrate leadership in many different ways. Students organize clubs, lead town halls, team up for community service projects, and participate in leadership events outside of school.
There are many ways for students to get involved, find other students with the same interests, and create new options at FJA that did not exist before. Clubs meet during lunch, giving almost all students an opportunity to participate. Students looking for after school activities can participate in the arts and athletics programs.
The Director of Student Life will provide information about forming a club at the beginning of the school year. Contact the Student Life Office for more information.
