Extra Curricular Activities

Clubs

While academic success is the top priority at NFCI, learning does not only take place inside a classroom. Students are encouraged to expand their experiences and partake in a multitude of activities, clubs and committees to develop a variety of transferable skills. Whether it be achieving good grades, meeting new friends, scoring a touchdown, getting a lead role in a school play, or improving leadership skills, we encourage students to approach any activity with  an open mind. Student life at NFCI takes place in an engaging and nurturing environment and is founded upon strong friendships that are formed among housemates, classmates, and teammates.

Students have many opportunities to develop their skills and interests through involvement in a variety of student clubs. Meet new people with similar interests, build friendships, and have fun!

Arts

Our arts program at NFCI encompasses each of the creative forms of artistic expression, including painting, music, poetry, film, photography, contemporary art, and others. In line with our philosophy of educating the person as a whole, our fine arts program fulfills the key role in developing the sense of culture, creativity, and informed perception in our students.

Athletics

Athletics plays an integral part in the development of students from grade school to post-secondary education. Athletics contributes to a sound body and healthy mind, as well as to the development of individual character and to the learning of commitment, discipline, and teamwork. From varsity sports to simple campus recreation, our goal is to provide the best program to improve the health and lifestyles of our students and staff while bolstering the school spirit.
