Clubs & Activities

Here at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley, our commitment to providing a rich and well-rounded student life for our students is evident by the clubs and activities we offer as a complement to our academic program. 

Clubs and other activities are as vital as academic preparation to leading a fulfilling life. They promote physical and mental health, fostering social engagement and the development of leadership skills.  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.


Our students accomplish big things year after year—and we couldn't be more proud! Some notable victories within our club offerings include the following:

  • Many students won awards at The Synopsis Science Fair Competition
