Ask almost any adult what they remember most about high school. Very few will mention the academics. Instead, they talk about the athletics, music/drama productions and clubs that they were part of. Through these activities, you will meet new friends, get to know your teachers in a different way, learn new ideas and develop important teamwork and leadership skills. Most importantly, your time at WCI will be the best years of your life – so far!
Each year, new and exciting activities begin at WCI. If you’d like to find out how to start an event or organization, drop by the Student Activities Office.
