Get involved on campus---JOIN A CLUB!


Mitty offers many extracurricular activities for its students. There are over 50 active clubs and programs on campus throughout the year that provide a space for students with common interests to have shared experiences. These clubs meet before, after, or during school.

These clubs are meant to serve as a way for students with common interests to gather, share experiences, and build community. Our club structure does not require or provide a means for students to miss academic school time for events. Fundraising is NOT ALLOWED for our clubs, and travel that involves overnight stays WILL NOT BE ALLOWED.

In the spring, students have the opportunity to apply for additional clubs by recruiting a moderator, completing a "new club application", enlisting a roster of members, and receiving approval from the Director of Student Activities. Proposed clubs needs to align with AMHS policies and doctrines.

Below are the clubs that have been approved for the 2024-25 school year:


In order to spread awareness and inclusion of the deaf community, students will learn basic conversational ASL, proper etiquette, and everyday phrases. The goal will be to learn and be able to have interactions and conversations in ASL with deaf or hard-of-hearing people. Through collaborative instruction during weekly interactive sessions, the students of the club will share the awareness to the world who will treat ASL and Deaf culture with respect. It encourages service, learning projects, academic achievements, and participation in annual art and ASL literature.
