Service Clubs

PAHS prides itself on the many service clubs that are offered.  Not only do students get involved in our Phoenixville community they also have the opportunity to reach out world-wide.

Best Buddies

Best Buddies is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating friendships between students with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their peers. As a club we hold fundraisers, volunteer in our community, attend school events, and have a ton of fun. The friendships that are established through this club not only last for the school year, but are lifelong friendships that positively impact both buddies’ lives. Best Buddies will be meeting bi-weekly rotating between before and after school meetings. Please reach out to Miss Nolan for information and a club calendar.

The students at Phoenixville Area High School spend 12 hours on their feet through the night to benefit Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, Hershey, PA.  The PHX “Mini-THON” is based on the Penn State Dance Marathon---the largest student-run philanthropy in the nation where dancers spend 46 hours awake and on their feet to raise money for pediatric cancer patients.  The mission of Four Diamonds is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and their families, through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.  Phoenixville students organize, run, and fundraise for this event throughout the year. PHX Mini-THON is looking for committee members to serve and welcomes all to join us to dance the night F.T.K.—For The Kids. For more information, email Ms. Kurtz
Phantom Ambassadors
Phantom Ambassadors are a group of students in grades 9-12 who have attended trainings and offer themselves as a support to the students of Phoenixville Area High School.  The Phantom Ambassadors have also been paired up with National Honor Society members and will be meeting with small groups of the freshman class to help them better transition from the middle to the high school. The Phantom Ambassadors are an integral part of the transitioning from the middle to high school. See Ms. Davies in room E-10 or Mrs. Cordingley in room E-8 for more information. Phantom Ambassadors are a club that chooses to build on leadership and character values of others through setting a positive example.  The goal of this leadership club is to minimize bullying of any form, create a safe and caring learning environment for others, all the while showing respect for our building, keeping it clean, and having each student show pride in their “home.”
