At Ricks Institute, a core part of learning and developing our students is the importance of
extracurricular activity. An extra-curricular activity is defined as any activity for which a grade is not
received. It is learning outside the classroom, as life responsibilities, learning and passion exist outside of the classroom. We expect and encourage every student to build skills such as team work, trust,
leadership, love and respect for self and others and service to others outside of our classrooms.
These activities include challenging and rewarding artistic endeavors, school and classroom leadership roles, academic clubs/organizations and volunteering/service to others.
We strongly recommend that students take advantage of our wide
range of extracurricular activities. The parents/ guardians must notify the
administration at the start of the academic year in writing if for any reason a
student cannot take part in extra-curricular activities.
Some extra-curricular activities could involve overnight educational field trips
outside of campus. All students must follow all rules of the institution while
on these trips. Any act contrary to our rules especially on educational field
trips could lead to immediate expulsion.
The school encourages all students to participate in extra-curricular activities.
Students who become involved will find it easier to adjust to school life and benefit personally from being at Ricks.
Students who do not fulfill their academic and/or discipline commitments will
be excluded from participating in extra-curricular activities. For a student to
gain or regain eligibility, the appropriate authority will write a letter of
reinstatement to the Academic Supervisor or the Student Affairs’ Office. Once
approved, the student is reinstated.
