Co-curricular activities engage students. Students can contribute and develop leadership skills through participation in service learning and after-school activities such as clubs and athletics. These activities enable students to be more self-directed, allow them to explore areas of interest and provide opportunities to experience success.

AOWL offers several co-curricular activities throughout the school year.  Questions regarding co-curricular activities can be directed to: Kaitlin Walsh, Activities Coordinator, at kaitlin.walsh@aowl.org
