The student clubs and societies at Heritage Xperiential Learning School are forums where student voices hold primacy. These student-led clubs are designed so that an "intentional" environment is created that supports youth leadership and community involvement. These clubs and societies also help the students to develop and hone their skills and interests in different subjects in a non-competitive atmosphere in synergy with the academic programme. A collateral benefit of this is also the application building for college admissions where proven leadership ability through involvement in school clubs is a must.
