At Kinard, students have the opportunity to get involved with many different extracurricular clubs and activities. These programs provide students an outlet to gain new skills, connect with friends, have fun, and solidify a sense of belonging to Kinard. Last year, over 500 students participated in Kinard clubs and activities.

August 2020: Clubs at Kinard are on hold for the moment due to COVID-19 restrictions. We will send out communication and update this page when we are able to safely meet with students for extracurricular activities. For questions, contact Erin LaRue @
