    Welcome to
    State College Area High School
    Student Activities!

    As students decide which courses they wish to take each year, they should also consider participation in extra-curricular activities. For many students, these activities provide opportunities and experiences which not only make high school more enjoyable, but also influence and sometimes determine future choices in both education and career paths. We are proud to offer more than ninety clubs and activities for our students. There is something for everyone.

    We offer:

    Student participation, competition and performance philosophy

     At the high school level for clubs and activities, advisors/coaches will have the dual responsibility of fostering individual skill development and achieving activity/club success.  To achieve this end the most effective and capable students as judged by the advisors/coaches, regardless of grade level, will be given the opportunity to further develop their skills, talents and abilities, to participate at the most advanced levels of competition and to perform at the highest levels available for high school extracurricular and co-curricular activities. An emphasis will be placed on helping the members of the activity/club group to work together and to develop a strong desire to attain the highest possible levels of success.


    So, GET INVOLVED and join a club or activity!
