While University High School values academics and music, we also believe that all students benefit from their involvement in extra-curricular activities. University High School has a wealth of clubs and activities. The Associated Student Body, a group of elected student officers, oversees most.

New Clubs - Students must:

  • Find a faculty advisor and determine the meeting time and location.
  • Form a mission statement and develop a budget.
  • Submit a new club application package (application, mission statement, and budget) to ASB for consideration.
