Beyond the Classroom
Student co-curricular life develops a sense of place, responsibility and self-worth. Our rich offering of clubs, organizations and co-curricular activities balance and complement our academic program.
All students contribute to the Baldwin community through clubs, community service and student leadership positions. Over 90% of our seniors graduate with significant leadership experience. These leadership opportunities in the Upper School are abundant and diverse. We are committed to giving student leaders autonomy and responsibility. When an event is held, students are in charge. Successful activities result from their authentic leadership.
At the end of the school year, Grade 12 students take part in an Externship Program. Without mandatory AP testing in early May, students have an uninterrupted three weeks of experience off campus in worthwhile individual programs. At the conclusion of their externships, students present their projects in a formal way to the student body and parents on Senior Externship Day during the week of Commencement.

Baldwin is proud of the many and diverse Clubs and Organizations that provide students with an opportunity to engage in rewarding projects outside the classroom. Best of all, if a girl is interested in starting something new, she can. Mirroring current interests of our students, our club list is quite dynamic.
In addition to Senate, Service League, Arts League and the Athletic Association, Club participation encourages the girls to discover, explore, and nurture their interests and talents. Some of the clubs offered in Upper School are Amnesty International, Anime, Games & Comics, A.S.A.P. (Animal Shelter Amazing Projects), B.S.U. (Black Students Union), Coding for Change, Comedy of the Commons, Creative Writing, Debate Club, DECA, G.L.I. (Girls Learn International), The Hourglass (the school newspaper), Mock Trial, Model Congress, Model UN, MultiRacial Affinity Club and Spectrum (LGBTQ+ students and their allies).
