Clubs and Activities

Activities at Detroit Country Day School are an integral part of a student's education. Because textbook knowledge is useful to the student who possesses the motivation to apply it, diverse opportunities are provided for students to learn how to handle meaningful responsibility. Both athletic and non-athletic activities are important vehicles to carry out this duty in the education of young people. From debate and Model United Nations to robotics and digital filmmaking, the talents and interests of our students and faculty create an ever-evolving set of club offerings designed to meet the needs of our students.
