Co-Curricular Programs- Where Learning Comes to Life !

The Co-Curricular program in Anne Arundel County Public Schools offers a broad spectrum of learning experiences outside of the traditional classroom for elementary, middle, and high school students. It is intended to complement, broaden and provide a practical application of the knowledge students receive in regular classes and afford every child the opportunity to participate in activities for which they have a passion for and enjoy.

These programs provide students the chance to work as a member of a group in order to achieve a goal. Co-Curricular activities require students to think critically, solve problems, manage time, and appreciate the talents and differing abilities of other students. In addition, it provides them with meaningful, expanded learning experiences, and opportunities to grow as individuals.

Our program believes in "Access, Equality and Excellence for all Students."

Programs are available in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) the Humanities (Art, English, Social Studies, World Language), specific Signature Programs, and AVID.

What opportunities are available?

The Advanced Co-Curricular Programs Office is a link between the Anne Arundel County Public School System (AACPS) and the community at large. It offers challenging opportunities for talented and/or advanced learners and their families in three main areas:

Advanced Clubs and Activities--Challenging and enriching clubs or activities offered through each school for students and/or families focused on a special interest or field.  Activities can be held during the school day, before or after school or on the weekends, while others take place in the summer. Many take place in a setting with face-to-face contact, while others are on-line, requiring remote internet and computer access.  Not all programs are available at all schools. To learn more about the opportunities available at your student's current school, please contact that school directly.

 Adjunct Programs--Programs offered by community partners to provide an enriching complement to a student’s regular education experience.  Adjunct programs augment the instructional program outside the regular school day.  Anne Arundel County Public Schools is fortunate to have strong partnerships with organizations in the community that comprise unparalleled resources, including the U.S. Naval Academy, the National Security Agency, Anne Arundel Community College, and Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.

Academic Competitions--A variety of academic challenges at local, state, and national levels in which schools (elementary, middle, and high) may elect to participate.  These competitions offer students the chance to compete in challenges focused on the Humanities fields, including the Arts, English, Social Studies, and World Language as well as the STEM fields, science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
