Clubs @ Baruch

BCCHS offers a broad array of clubs to meet the interest of our students.  All clubs are student-led organizations.  We have a club fair at the beginning of each year where students can meet club members and learn more about each club’s activities and mission.  Of course, new clubs are always welcome as well. 

Below is a list of current BCCHS clubs, a short description, contact information and meeting details. 

Our club is a super fun club about Artificial Intelligence. We will have some fun projects and activities as well as talk about the technological advancements in the world of science. Although this is basically a science club, it will not be the biggest commitment of your life because we want everyone to have fun and learn something new that isn’t a part of the regular school day! So join our club, and there might even be snacks!
