CHS Clubs

School Sponsored Clubs

A list of current Carmel High School sponsored clubs. The clubs listed are annually sponsored by Carmel High School faculty members that are hired by CHS administration. All school sponsored clubs must meet the following criteria: a.) provide an opportunity to participate in an school sponsored “performance”, an academic “competition”, or community service totaling at least 40 hours each school year, b.) members must agree to and sign the code of conduct, and c.) participate in the Community Open House, Activities Night, and the SRT Activities Fair.

Student Interest Clubs

A list of current CHS student interest clubs. Carmel High School is able to provide a safe place for students to meet and discuss their similar interests under supervision of faculty volunteers within the school. At the start of the school year, student interest clubs must reapply to be active. If you are interested in starting a club, please visit the activities office for a club proposal form.

The Carmel High School family strives to create a positive environment in which all are challenged and inspired to achieve their potentials. Academics and student activities are the backbone of Carmel High School.

Activities can benefit students only if they participate in them. Through participation in the activities program, a student will become a part of the rich tradition of our school.

Research has shown that participation in extracurricular activities is a better predictor for success in adult life than college entrance examinations or grade point averages.

Positive participation in activities also shows students' level of commitment to and involvement in their school. Carmel High School students are fortunate to be at Indiana's largest high school with a wide range of opportunities for participation.

The phrase "you can make a big school small, but you can't make a small school big" is heard frequently at Carmel and similar schools. Although we are a large school, the opportunity to participate in activities gives students the chance to "make a big school small" by forming closer relationships with other students.

Each activity described in this handbook has something to offer. The opportunities for making friends, achieving personal growth, traveling to new places and developing new skills are limitless.

The Carmel High School staff encourages students to get involved in the activities program. For many years we have told our students that, "You can only take with you what you leave behind" and to please choose to "leave something behind" by becoming involved in our activities program.
