We believe that participation in a wide variety of extracurricular and student-selected activities is a vital part of our educational philosophy. Students at all grade levels have the opportunity to participate in various extracurricular and student-selected clubs.

    The MUN club provides a challenging and an enriching forum for students to discuss current international issues and to view those issues from different perspectives. Members are chosen and trained in the Spring semester and may have the opportunity to attend a conference prior to the end of that school year. Tryouts are held during the latter half of the Spring Semester for the following year. Additionally there is another tryout session at the start of the year for new students to CAC. The club meets to practice debate procedures, resolution writing and to learn about their assigned countries and issues. CAC also hosts an international conference for three days each October (CACMUN) which features five forums and a Plenary experience: The Disarmament Forum, Human Rights and Environment Forum, The Security Council, The Disarmament and Economic Security Forum, and the International Court of Justice.
