US Co-Curriculars

Amidst a seemingly full schedule, Providence Country Day School students find the energy and passion to lead and participate in a vibrant club program. Student leaders often emerge through these programs because clubs are wholly student driven. Each year, some new clubs start, other clubs are retired, and longstanding clubs gain new life and direction.

Rhode Island State Champions

PCD's Mock Trial Team works with professional attorney/coaches to prepare prosecution, defense and witness testimonies. The team competes throughout the year and in 2017 PCD represented the state of Rhode Island in the National Championships.

While students are primarily responsible for planning cocurricular activities, at least one faculty advisor helps manage each club. Activities like Mock Trial are rigorous and challenging—requiring an extensive time commitment, while others—such as Crafting and the Music Appreciation Club, give students a fun way to pursue shared interests. In addition, groups like Habitat for Humanity and PeaceJam sponsor wide-spread community service efforts, while Student Government and Admissions Ambassadors contribute greatly to the social and cultural climate of the school. Thus, through cocurricular activities, PCD students gain another frame through which they see the significance of participation, initiative, persistence, and hard work.

If students come to PCD with an inclination to specialize, they leave with an often unexpected appreciation for new and diverse interests.
