Clubs on Campus

There are many clubs at Simi Valley High School. Some are special interest clubs like the Horticulture Club. There are service clubs like Key Club and Interact, as well as CSF (California Scholarship Federation) which is an honor club. Students desiring to form a new club should talk to the Director of Activities, ask for a copy of the ASB Constitution, and follow the procedure as written. Students desiring to join a club should watch for Club Rush Day, held in September, or contact the ASB Office to find out how to get involved in campus life. There’s something for everyone, so show your spirit and join in the fun!

These hours should be separate from service hours accrued for other clubs on campus, scouts or church groups, etc. There is a $15 membership fee per semester that goes toward a small scholarships awarded in senior year. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by S-14 to ask Mrs. Peterson.
