Beyond the classroom, our students have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of school-sponsored activities.
Our academic program is further enriched by extracurricular programs and experiences.
Clubs change annually based on student and teacher interest. We encourage students to bring their ideas.
Chess Club (Middle School) – Whether you are new to chess and just learning, good at chess and looking for a worthy opponent, or in-between, you are welcome! The Chess Club will promote higher order thinking skills and positive socialization in a fun and friendly forum.
Girl Scouts (Middle School) – Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Field trips offer a chance for students to learn outside the classroom. Field trips are provided over the course of the school year and typically includes excursions such as the Patterson Fruit Farm for early elementary grades, Lutheran East for 8th graders, etc. Information regarding additional trips, times, and locations will be provided in advance to parents by their child’s classroom teachers or school administration.
East Academy implements a Positive Behavior Intervention Support Program. Establishing effective discipline practices is critical to ensure academic success and to provide a safe learning environment. The goal of PBIS is to improve the climate and culture of East Academy. One character trait will be explored each month (September = Respect, etc).
East Academy students have the opportunity to participate in organized sports. We offer basketball for those in middle school and cheerleading for grades 4 through 8. These sports take place after school and on the weekends. Small fees may apply.
