A WISH Academy education is about more than classroom learning. WISH is a community that gives students the tools they need to develop their interests and believe in the power of extra-curricular activities to open new doors to self-discovery. Each year more than 35 clubs, programs, and specialty classes are offered, along with more than a dozen sports programs competing in the CIF League. Every WISH scholar takes more than one specialty class each year, and more than 70% of WISH Academy scholars are active in at least one club or sports team. Through these offerings, students can cultivate favorite or newly found passions where they can learn invaluable leadership lessons, time management, organization, and the importance of teamwork on sports teams, performing arts groups, clubs, and service projects.
