Even with our students' robust academic and active schedules, we encourage them to participate in clubs of their choice. These clubs are student organized and run, affording more freedom in the activities offered and in opportunities for leadership. Students may get as involved in the clubs as they'd like and, of course, extra-curricular activities look good on college applications.

CRMS is currently the home of three global philanthropies including Peace Jam, Operation Smile, and Face Aids. Peace Jam and Operation Smile are currently working together in order to sponsor children all around the world for cleft-palate operations. The Operation Smile club started in January of 2009, and the CRMS community has already made it possible for three children to receive the cleft-palate surgery through different fund-raising events.

Another group of CRMS students recently started a Face Aids chapter supporting Aids research and funding throughout Rwanda and raised over $500 at their first fund-raising endeavor this past week. They are also reaching out to the other high schools in the area encouraging them to get involved.

This is just one way CRMS prepares our students for an extraordinary life. www.crms.org
