Academic teams at SFHS are offered to students who seek an intellectual challenge, personal growth, and the benefits of team membership. Most teams are one year courses earning two-credits. Attendance, participation in team events, positive attitude and support for team members are used for student assessment. Some teams hold try-outs and/or require applications. For all others, students may sign up in August.
Benefits of Membership
Participants develop academic and professional skills and knowledge beyond the classroom. They practice team building and cooperative planning, build friendships and camaraderie with classmates, and interact with motivated and positive students from other schools. Full commitment over a period of two to four years also adds to a student’s resume for college, and many teams exist in some form at the university level, often with scholarships. Finally, academic teams provide opportunities for new experiences and fun activities!
New Members Encouraged
We invite new freshmen and new and returning students to join any of the Academic Teams, typically at the beginning of the school year. No background or previous experience is required, however, applications and auditions and/or interviews are held for many teams.
