Clubs and Activities
Welcome to the student activities program at Upper Arlington High School. Our high school strives to offer a diversified group of student activities, and we encourage student involvement.
Purpose of Extra-Curricular Programs
The Board of Education recognizes that a complete extra-curricular program based upon student interest assists in the total education of students. While emphasis is given to intellectual growth, diversified opportunities must be provided for students who wish to participate in the program. All such programs must contribute to the goals of general education to justify their existence in the curriculum.
The purposes of the extra-curricular program are:
To afford an opportunity for participation by all students who desire to take part and meet the academic standards for eligibility
To allow the participant to develop maximum self-potential
To create an atmosphere that will promote a positive social attitude
To provide an opportunity to extend student interest beyond the classroom experience, within and outside the community
To provide an opportunity to develop skills and attitudes which can be employed in daily life and in the wise use of leisure time
To provide an opportunity for teachers and instructors to view the student in a variety of activities
Academic Requirements (Athletic, Extra-Curricular and Co-Curricular)
High school students must meet the following academic requirements in order to participate in athletics, extra-curricular activities, or co-curricular activities:
A student must earn at least a 2.0 grade point average in order to be eligible for participation. The GPA will be calculated each grading period, and eligibility can be maintained, gained, or lost each grading period.
A student's eligibility will be determined according to his or her GPA for each nine-week grading period. A student's eligibility will be determined by examining each nine-week GPA independently of prior grading periods.
In addition to the above requirements, a UAHS student athlete must qualify under all rules established by the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA). Which includes: "During the preceding grading period, the student must have received passing grades in a minimum of five one-credit courses or the equivalent which count toward graduation."
