Clubs & Activites

Beta Club - The National Beta Club was founded in 1934 for the purpose of honoring and recognizing students for their achievement, character, and leadership qualities. Today our membership is based on those same three characteristics. Our Senior Beta Club here at Broadwater was chartered in May of 1969. Students in Beta Club participate in service projects both in our school and in our community.

Blue Crab Bowl - Broadwater Oceanography students participate in the Virginia regionals of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl. This fast-paced, Jeopardy-like competition pits sixteen teams from Virginia’s top high schools, both public and private, against one another in the Blue Crab Bowl. Hosted by Old Dominion University and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, the Blue Crab Bowl provides a friendly but very competitive setting for students to display their prowess in marine geology, chemistry, physics, biology, and technology. Broadwater has participated most years since the inception of the Bowl, placing as high as third in the state.

Chimers - Grades 8 Performing Arts students comprise the Chime Choir at Broadwater. They perform at Christmas, in the spring at school, and in the community.

Chorale - The chorale group performs several times throughout the year, at various Broadwater functions and throughout the Eastern Shore. The Broadwater Chorale serves as valuable community outreach, in order to present to local residents the best face of Broadwater. It is also our hope that through its concerts, The Broadwater Chorale sparks interest among the student body for high quality music and live performance. Vocalists are taught basic and advanced vocal technique, principles of vocal harmony, and group dynamics.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (F.C.A.) - The club is open to students in Upper School. F.C.A. is the largest Christian sports organization in America. F.C.A. focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering, and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ. The Broadwater F.C.A. meets regularly for Bible studies. They host tournaments open to the entire Middle and Upper school.

Hi-Y - Hi-Y is a service and civic advocacy organization affiliated with the Virginia YMCA. The group's goal is to better the community by serving others and urging the community to participate in the democratic process. During the Holidays, Hi-Y coordinates a toy drive to give those less fortunate a memorable season. They also coordinate voter registration opportunities and create a student forum to facilitate communication between the student body and the school as a whole.  Selected Hi-Y members participate in the Model General Assembly each spring.

Red Cross - Working closely with friends, having fun and learning new things about yourselves, your peers, community and the world can all happen in the Broadwater Academy Red Cross club. You can acquire new skills in leadership, get engaged in grassroots service, and lend a helping hand to those in need. As part of this high school club students work with the local service agencies to learn how to perform CPR , organize blood drives, do community fund raisers, work with Habitat for Humanity and much more. This is a club for teens committed to making their school, their community and the world a better place. Your acquired skills build a solid foundation of personal tools which are important to succeeding in college and any number of future careers.

Student Council - Student Council is composed of elected representatives from Grades 9 through 12 whose main purpose is to uphold the honor code at Broadwater Academy. Student Council representatives and officers weigh evidence and recommend consequences for honor code violations. The members also assist at various school functions, such as Open House, Spirit Week, and Graduation.
