After-School Activities

 

 Southfield School encourages students to discover their passions inside and outside the classroom. Whether exploring an early interest in civic leadership or budding talent in art, our students find and enjoy many opportunities through clubs.

In addition to athletics , there are a variety of after-school activities available for Southfield students, and we continue to enhance our program offerings as we identify interest from our students.
