Social Life and Community
A WIDE VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO CREATE LASTING FRIENDSHIPS WITHIN A GLOBAL COMMUNITY.
Social life at Altitude Academies can be very rewarding for students who want to expand their horizons. Our students are passionate about their education, talents, interests, and goals.
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Club Med Academies school is proud to be a part of the National Honor Society (NHS). Since its inception in 1929, the National Honor Society has recognized outstanding high school students whose accomplishments go beyond excellent academic performance and include exceptional leadership, service, and character qualities.
We take great pride in the accomplishments of our students who have achieved this premier distinction. Our school’s affiliation with the National Honor Society provides a unique forum in which the student leaders of our school can participate in service learning projects.
We honor incoming National Honor Society members with the traditional induction ceremony. This event is a milestone for students who have worked hard to meet NHS requirements and have completed challenging coursework and projects.
The induction ceremony is a wonderful way for these students to celebrate their accomplishments as a group. We join family members to honor students’ academic and personal achievements.
NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is the national organization that acknowledges outstanding middle school students beginning in the 7th grade. These students have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship.
Each year, the CMA school at Altitude Academies hosts a graduation ceremony, where students have the opportunity to celebrate this milestone with their classmates and the school staff. Students from around the world attend the commencement ceremony, which is complete with caps, gowns, and diplomas. The graduation ceremony is personal for graduates and families because it features inspiring statements from teachers about their experiences with graduating students.
Our students attend events competing regionally, nationally and internationally throughout the year students and parents attend many of these events.
We offer our students and families opportunities to collaborate and make friends and participate fully in the Altitude Academies experience.

Students are invited to attend any scheduled guest lectures and/or presentations. These exclusive live events feature inspiring stories from celebrated leaders in their fields.
Symposia guests have included best-in-class world-renowned athletes, sports psychologists, photographers, scientists, an astronaut, an award- winning documentary film director, a South Pole explorer, and an environmental activist.
During the symposium, students are encouraged to ask questions, offer comments, and engage in discussions with peers and experts.
Clubs are a key part of the student experience, deepening relationships and providing students with the chance to work collaboratively. Clubs offer full-time students the opportunity to connect and socialize with other students who share their same interests, talents, and goals.
Students gather in a stimulating, inviting, safe, and secure environment, where they can engage each other and dive more deeply into subjects that interest them. Students work together on projects and activities with the guidance of experienced, dynamic teachers.
