Myriad opportunities abound for all students to develop their talents and passions for engaging with self, others, and society in positive and impactful ways.
We are a college preparatory school where day students alongside domestic & international boarding students enjoy manifold possibilities to learn not just within the classroom but beyond its walls.
Clubs & Activities
Pioneer Academy students enjoy a wealth of clubs, extracurricular activities, athletics, and local and global service experiences that take learning, growing, leading, serving, creating, and performing far beyond the classroom.

My extracurricular activities at Pioneer gave me the opportunity to gain and expand leadership and social skills. It was in my extracurricular activities that I also found what I am most passionate about.

Service Learning, Civic Engagement
Pioneer Academy’s commitment to Service Leadership and Civic Engagement influences all aspects of our school – academics, athletics, the arts, and extracurricular clubs and activities – to emphasize our shared, universal humanitarian values. Service to school and community involvement transform Pioneer students from learners and volunteers into ethical leaders and global citizens who contribute meaningfully to society and our shared world.
A sense of civic responsibility, empathy, and global citizenship is developed by students’ service immersions in local and international humanitarian and philanthropic volunteering opportunities, as well as visits from guest speakers, mentoring, and colloquia. By learning experientially and leading through service, students gain invaluable and unforgettable educational, cultural, humanitarian and social-entrepreneurial experiences that transcend classroom instruction and teach them to value different perspectives from their own, serve the underserved, and inspire others with the common desire to positively contribute to society.
Learn collaboratively, through direct experience
Students socialize and learn of ideas and cultures from all over the world through primary sources and direct experience in a safe setting that supports and enriches as much as it empowers. Pioneer students are empowered to pursue their intellectual, creative, athletic, and community-building passions to develop the personal and leadership skills integral to becoming successful adults and tomorrow’s future leaders, today.
Student members of the SGA represent their classmates and dedicate their time to promoting student-driven events to develop social opportunities for personal growth and enrichment. SGA is committed to creating an inclusive school community where each class member has a voice and becomes an active member of the Pioneer community. Class representatives work with their class advisers to create class activities and events, class field trips and class fundraisers.
National Honor Society
Creating opportunities for service is at the heart of the Pioneer Academy Chapter of National Honor Society enrichment. NHS works towards serving their school, serving their neighborhoods and promoting fundraisers and global service projects. Students can be part of school committees that raise awareness of risky behaviors, promote healthy lifestyles and support equality and diversity. Each year the committee chooses a group of student leaders to organize activities.
Nurturing Tomorrow's Leaders, Today
We are committed to creating the space and supporting every chance for our young citizens to develop into ethical leaders, creators, thinkers, and doers that challenge themselves and those around them to build a better shared world for all of us.
Pioneer Academy students are global citizens who gain valuable experience by helping others, whether this means in school, on campus, locally or internationally.
Our emphasis on supporting students’ critical thinking, ethics, and incubating their leadership potential through community service and volunteering fosters humanitarian and civic engagement as well as social awareness and responsibility.
