BASIS DC offers a wealth of extracurricular activities, including
athletics, music, theater, and a multitude of clubs. While many of
these activities take place after school, extracurricular programming is
separate from Late Bird and each activity carries its own distinct fee.
Specific information about these activities and their fees will be
available in the early weeks of school.
Timely arrival to these activities is required. Late arrival to
extracurricular activities may result in removal from the program. There
will be NO refund of extracurricular participation fees.
Students are dismissed from after-school programs at prearranged
times indicated on the sign-up sheets for the individual programs. If a
student is not picked up at the prearranged time, he/she will be placed
in the Late Bird Program and charged a fee.
No club may meet without a faculty member present, and all clubs must
be approved by the Auxiliary Program Director, the Director of Student
Affairs and the Head of School. Faculty advisors must attend all
Athletics and Athlete Expectations
BASIS DC works hard to provide team sports for our students. Details
of an individual team will be available on the sign-up form for that
team and can be discussed with the Athletics Director. All athletes
must sign an Athletes Creed in order to participate in athletics. This
states that a student’s first priority will always be academics. If any
student athlete is not meeting the expectations of his/her teachers or
Dean of Students, or if he/she has repeated disciplinary issues, he/she
may be removed from a sports team at any time.
All fundraising activities require prior approval by the Head of
Operations. Faculty Club Advisors must submit a budget indicating the
specifics of the fundraising planned for the specific activity. Due to
health codes, students may not sell food on campus
