Leadership Opportunties & 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.

Clubs and Committees

American Dream Club
The purpose for the American Dream Club, as a chapter of the Young Americans Foundation, is to allow for students to express their 1st amendment right and to discuss political issues. In addition, we strive to educate students about conservatism while at the same time, making it a priority to look at all sides of every issue.
 
Community Service Club
The Community Service Club provides a unique opportunity for students to learn about volunteering in their community. It is also a good option for students to learn about how to fulfill their community service hours while spending time with fellow students.
 
Girls to Women
Girls to Women focuses on women empowering women. We use the inspiration of powerful women and feminists to learn and grow as women in today's world.
 
Preserving the Earth Club
The Preserving the Earth Club offers a multitude of ways to raise overall environmental awareness at FJA and serves to involve students in environmental sustainability. To accomplish this, club members engage in projects, lessons, discussions, and nature hikes all with a general focus on protecting the environment.
 
Social Justice Club

National Honor Society

The National Honor's Society Chapter inducts new members every fall.  As a member of NHS students are expected to maintain a GPA of 3.7, perform 20 hours of community service and 15 synagogue visits each year.  Within NHS there is a leadership committee who meets monthly to learn how to create and plan programs.

Spirit Week

Students celebrate their school spirit by wearing grade colors, decorating their hallways and competing in grade competitions.  Spirit week normally takes place during the fall semester around the homecoming dance.

School Dances

FJA hosts two all school dances, one in the fall and one in the spring, along with a prom for FJA seniors and their guests.
