Clubs are also a great opportunity for additional social engagement, and help students feel more connected to their classmates, teachers, and the greater school community. Our 2021-2022 club offerings are listed below.
Middle + High School Combined Clubs
CW Club is open to ORVA students interested in writing poetry, prose, plays, song lyrics, raps, graphic novels/comics, & other genres. The purpose of the Creative Writing Club is to provide a positive & productive atmosphere for developing student writers to integrate, learn, & grow. In addition, the organization will teach students to harness creativity effectively with a variety of different contests or workshops & exercises so as to benefit an individual’s skill & competence as a writer. If you want to share your writing, get inspired and support fellow writers—this is the club for you!

Ever felt excluded? Ever wondered if you are the only one who feels that all stories and individuals have value? Cultural Diversity Club promotes the teaching of acceptance of others, no matter their beliefs, religion, or ethnicity. We will study various cultures, ethnicities, & religions of the world in a fun, stress-free environment. We will vote on which cultures the club would study for each meeting. We will study different cultures/diverse groups by coming up with activities like watching movies, reading books, listening to music, & inviting outside speakers. Students are allowed to present & incorporate their own unique perspectives of the world. The more members, the better!
Students are driving the direction of this club and at this point, it is still evolving. For the first few meetings the students decided we are going to read “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe and discuss it. Later, students are going share favorite authors and book recommendations at the next meeting. Come explore all things literature!
