Extracurricular activity

Extracurricular activities are activities performed by students that fall outside the realm of the normal curriculum of school or university education. Extracurricular activities exist at all levels of education, from 4th-6th, junior high/middle school, high school, college and university education. On average, in the United States, many students participate in a minimum of one extracurricular activity throughout the course of one school year.

Students often organize and direct these activities under faculty sponsorship; although student-led initiatives - such as independent newspapers - are common.
