  • Student Clubs and Programs

    We believe in the infinite worth and dignity of each individual in our community. It is with that lens that we promote and support our student clubs. All student groups are supported by a faculty sponsor and overseen by our Director of Community Life. Some of the clubs at Walker include, 

    Diversity Alliance
    The Diversity Alliance promotes the constant pursuit of education on matters of anti-racism, abolition, equity, quality and how to foster those environments, to give students a voice in matters relating to diversity and inclusion within the school community and beyond. They create a safe space where students can discuss cultural diversity and effect change to make our school an even better place. 

    Fellowship of Christian Athletes
    Members of FCS meet for fellowship, discussions and Bible study. All students are welcome.

    Girls Learn
    Girls Learn International is a club where students learn about and discuss current problems girls face around the globe. Each year the club discusses a specific topic. 

    Hillel
    Members of Hillel meet monthly for parties celebrating Jewish traditions. All are welcome!

    LGBT+Allies
    The purpose of Walker’s LGBT +Allies club is to promote equality and acceptance among all students and offer a safe place for LGBT students and their allies to discuss important issues in their daily lives.
