Culture Clubs

The Culture Clubs offered at PAHS allows for students to connect with people who have the same interests in a wide variety of areas.


Activist Club
Our goal is to inform ourselves about current issues and how to make a difference through advocacy. This club is open to people of all beliefs. We welcome everyone to join and share their opinions in debates and friendly discussions. We are students interested in making a difference.

French Club
The “Cercle Francophone” (French Club) meets once a month and is open to all students. Some of our discussions include promotion of the French Program, trips to French-speaking countries, and fundraising. The purpose of French Club is to explore and learn about the Francophone cultures through cooking lessons, outings to restaurants, trips to museums (Philadelphia Art Museum, Rodin Museum, Barnes Foundation), French films (Colonial Theatre, Ursinus College French Film Festival), and more. French Club is run by students, and depends on the ideas and active participation of its members to make it interesting and fun!

German Club
Deutschklub exists to further the knowledge and education for students who wish to pursue German outside the classroom and beyond the scope of school instruction; to meet other German speakers with whom a student may not have class; as forum for students who are not currently enrolled in a German class to keep up and develop their German skills; as a forum to which to invite native speakers; to plan exchanges, visits, trips; for German cultural experiences, such as food, movies and conversation; to support the German program at the high school. It is open to all current and past German students at PAHS.  Meetings are as posted.  See Frau Tavani (I-12) for more information.
