Sports, Clubs, and Activities

Our commitment to providing a fulfilling student life for our students is evident by the clubs, sports, and activities we offer as a complement to our academic program.

Extracurriulars are as vital as academic preparation to leading a fulfilling life. They promote health, social engagement and leadership skills.

BASIS Independent Silicon Valley takes it a step further, relying on students to both participate and to guide the offerings: first by surveying their interests, and later by encouraging students to develop programs where they see a need.

In competitive sports, recreational athletics, clubs and societies of all nature, students at BASIS Independent will find opportunities to stretch skills and talents to unexpected levels.

There is so much opportunity in this school; clubs, electives, school events, teamwork, and spirit are all great things I see every day.
