Club
 
 
 Collegiate Academy weekly clubs meet the last period of the day Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.
 
Alternate History
Sponsor: Mr. Cavanagh 
Email: Riley.Cavanagh@gcisd.net
Meets: Mondays
Purpose: Alternate History Club looks at real world problems in alternate history scope. Students choose their groups and all of the qualities of their country and are given problems that they just solve. Their diplomacy or lack thereof determines the future problems that will face their group and in order to face some of their problems they must align themselves with other groups in the club.

Student Ambassadors
Sponsor: Mr. Cavanagh
Email: Riley.Cavanagh@gcsid.net
Meets: Tuesdays
Purpose: When you all made the decision to come to Collegiate Academy it was likely influenced in one way or another by the student ambassadors that came to your school and tried to sell you on the Collegiate Academy experience. They aren’t limited to going to middle schools, but instead also have a program setup with elementary schools in which they mentor 5th graders, and are the students that we call upon to meet with visitors to our school. If you’re the kind of person that can sell ice to an eskimo and wants to help other people share in the amazing opportunity you’ve been given at Collegiate Academy then this is the club for you!
  
Creativity Club
Sponsor: Mrs. Haney
Email: Kristinia.Haney@gcsid.net
Meets: Tuesdays
Purpose: In this club, members explore their individual interests in small groups. Students will identify their interests and gather materials to work on their project from home. Students will then work on these projects they design for themselves and will present their creations and learning in a showcase each semester and on our club blog. In the past students explored juggling, piano, coding, random acts of kindness, and jewelry making. We will expand our opportunities. Imagine, inspire, transform!
 
Creative Writing
Sponsor: Mr. Dye
Email: Mark.Dye@gcisd.net
Meets: Wednesdays
Purpose: Pens and pencils madly scribbling, the students in Creative Writing Club craft stories and poetry packed to the brim with sensory details and powerful metaphors, like engines churning out art instead of thrust. Primarily the club provides three opportunities for its members: improving their overall writing skills, getting them published, and creating a Collegiate Academy literary magazine. Mr. Dye will help students with whatever their needs are on a given story, and all assignments are self-determined. (You can write what you want!)
 
Destination Imagination
Sponsor: Mrs. Brown
Email: Lynlie.Brown@gcsid.net
Meets: Wednesdays
Purpose: Destination Imagination is a competitive club at Collegiate Academy. This club has students work in collaborative teams to solve a central project that they will present at a tournament. Teams will practice instant challenges weekly, where students will combine acting, engineering, team work, and critical problem solving, to overcome a challenge.
 
Helping Hands
Sponsor: Mrs. Dudley and Ms. Young
Email: Janica.Dudley@gcisd.net and Robin.Young@gcisd.net
Meets: Mondays
Purpose: The Helping Hands Club is for students who enjoy helping out others. All year long, we do "good deeds" to help out those in our school, community, and beyond. Some of the projects included in the club's plans are: Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, Pen Pals with soldiers, supporting literacy development projects for students in Africa, making bows and blankets for children and babies in the hospital, and more. 
 
Math Club
Sponsor: Ms. Roberts
Email: Sarah.Roberts@gcisd.net
Meets: Thursdays
Purpose: Some people prefer 3.14 to pumpkin pie. Some people go to six flags just to look at the parabolas created by the roller coasters. And some people know that the reason that ⅕ was stressed was because he was 2/10. If you’re someone that falls into the aforementioned categories or is just someone that is interested in competing in math tournaments then this is the club for you!
 
Soccer
Sponsor: Mrs. Aurbakken 
Email: Kirsten.Aurbakken@gcisd.net
Meets: Wednesdays
Purpose: High school sports are so competitive, they take up all of your time outside of school and the coaches usually suck all of the fun out of it. Not at Collegiate Academy! Our soccer team is the best team in our league and has been for the last four years, it’s co-ed and if anything the coach makes it more fun. If you’re someone that’s interested in playing sports in a fun environment with your friends and a coach that will lift you up rather than tear you down then this is the club for you!
  
Strategy Games
Sponsor: Mr. Schubert
Email: Benjamin.Schubert@gcisd.net
Meets: Tuesdays
Purpose: We all have need to plan ahead and think about our next move in life. Think you can checkmate a chess champion? Care to risk it all by invading Russia during the winter time in a friendly game of risk? If you’re someone that is always thinking two steps ahead of your opponent then this is the club for you!
  
Student Council
Sponsor: Ms. Waters
Email: Jessica.Waters@gcisd.net
Meets: Tuesdays
Purpose: We all want to make a difference and we all know the best way to improve our school. Student Council is the club that has the biggest impact on changing and improving our school every single year, whether it be through planning our dances, the festival of lights float, or any of the other extremely important activities Mrs. Waters has you doing. If you’re someone with great ideas and is looking to improve the school you chose to attend then this is the club for you!
 
Volleyball
Sponsor: Ms. Jackson
Email: Lauren.Jackson@gcisd.net
Meets: Thursdays
Purpose: Sometimes we all want to hit a ball really hard, and this club gives you the perfect opportunity to do just that. Our volleyball club consists of several co-ed teams that play against each other on Friday’s and will begin playing against the other early colleges in the future. If you’re someone that has a history of playing volleyball, sand volleyball, water volleyball or no volleyball whatsoever then this is the club for you!
 
Yearbook
Sponsor: Mrs. Haney
Email: Kristinia.Haney@gcsid.net
Meets: Mondays and Wednesdays
Purpose: Everyone wants to be voted most likely to succeed, best hair, or funniest jokes, but even if you don’t win it’s awesome to get to decide which hilarious pictures of your friends end up in the yearbook to accompany those awards. If you’re someone that is only a couple million instagram followers away from internet stardom and who loves to put filters on any and every picture you’ve ever taken then this is the club for you!
