Clubs_top1.jpgExploring passions to cultivate new interests—risk-taking and resiliency at its core—is a Nueva extra-curricular hallmark, rooted in the cultivation of lifelong curiosity and engagement. Guided by faculty, subject matter experts and parent volunteers, these extracurricular activities provide fun and challenging opportunities for students to learn new skills, collaborate towards common goals and build relationships founded on mutual interest with peers and adults.

If a club or activity is not already established, students are encouraged to initiate clubs centered on their interests, and to learn about themselves as they take on leadership roles. Below is a list of active activities and clubs over the past two years:

Teams of Nueva students participate in FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) programs including FIRST LEGO League events and FIRST Robotics Competitions. Ranging from grades 4 through high school, our students immerse themselves, using science and technology, collaboration and innovation, to meet the design challenges presented.

MODEL UNITED NATIONS

Nueva students are passionate about Model UN, the educational simulation and academic competition. Teams take on long-term commitments, studying assigned countries and problems, ultimately competing at conferences around the world. They learn diplomacy, international relations and the workings of our United Nations while taking intellectual and personal risks, making persuasive arguments and compromising with other countries’ student delegates to craft winning resolutions.

FUTURES PROBLEM SOLVING

Nueva’s Future Problem Solving teams have a long history of successful competition at local, national and international levels. “Futures” combines rigorous, intellectually challenging research with analysis and brainstorming of solutions to problems that have social, political, economic and technological implications.

STUDENT COUNCIL
