Clubs and Activities

School Clubs

At RBA, we empower our scholars to work alongside teachers as they form new clubs based on their interest.  Currently, we offer a yearbook club, a cooking club, and an art club.  We are also working on an RBA Merch Store where scholars can create their own designs.  Our teachers are always open to new ideas, and we'd love to hear what club your scholar wants to start!


Field Trips

We prioritize field-trips and excursions to expose our scholars to the amazing areas around Chicago.  In past years, we have taken our scholars to the Museum of Science and Industry, the Joffrey Ballet, various movies, and performances such as Hamilton!


Sports and Exercise

RBA staff collaborate with scholars, led by our Sports Club President, to choose the sports that are offered each month.  This year, they chose Tennis, Fencing, and Pickleball among other options such as Basketball and Volleyball.


RBA's Wellness Program

As part of our participation in the National School Lunch Program, we offer various wellness activities throughout the year such as healthy recipe contests, the Young Chef's Club, guest speakers to discuss wellness, and RBA's Health Fair.  Check out our October Apple Crunch where scholars taste tested various types of apples!
