Student Life

When we model the kinds of leadership we hope to see in the world, the entire community benefits.

From intentional leadership skill-building in the classroom— such as public speaking and problem solving—to leadership opportunities such as Peer Counseling, buddy programs, and mentoring, Flintridge Prep offers a variety of ways to experience the confidence each of us needs to feel secure in our leadership skills. 

Leadership Organizations

Flintridge Prep’s largest leadership organizations work together to achieve common goals. 

Club Life

Club life at Flintridge Prep is a powerful vehicle for student agency and provides countless opportunities to express what’s important to you. All clubs are completely student-run with guidance from a faculty advisor.

We value a balanced approach to learning and celebrates students with diverse interests. We have dozens of clubs and activities for you to join. From Mock Trial and Speech and Debate, to Robotics and Girls Who Code, to Cultural Education Club and Activism in the Arts—we promise you’ll find the club for you.

Latino club table at Club Rush

The Latino Club leaders share information about the club's mission and how to get involved during Club Rush, a community wide opportunity for students to find out about all the clubs on campus.

If you’re looking for a club that doesn’t exist, don’t worry—you can create a club on your own. All you need is a faculty advisor and then you’ll present your club charter at our Club Rush and Community Impact Fair.

Mentoring & Internships


Peer Counseling

Rising seniors can apply to serve as peer counselors for a small group of 7th or 9th graders. Peer counselors help students with their transitions to middle school and high school, offer an orientation to Flintridge Prep, advice on making friends, and answering “Where do I?” and “How do I?” questions. 

Seniors are prepared to take on this responsibility through weekly training sessions and required enrollment in our year-long psychology course. Peer counselors travel with their counselees on outdoor education trips and meet with them regularly throughout the year to provide support and mentoring.

Eighth Grade Buddies

Eighth Grade Buddies is a student-designed program that pairs seniors with 8th grade students to offer friendship, advice and support throughout the year.

Prep Exchange

The mentoring program Prep Exchange links students with parents and alumni for career and college advice, as well as summer internships for 11th and 12th graders. The Prep Exchange internship program is supported by Student Life staff as well as the Flintridge Prep Volunteer Network.

Student Life News

Thanks in large part to Flintridge Prep’s creative student body, we have many unique traditions, some decades old, some recently established, many created and fostered by our student leaders. For example, Morning Meeting, a weekly assembly led by Student Senate in which students creatively convey announcements through skits, videos, and performances, was created by a student initiative. Book Day is the first day of school, where new students, helped by peer counselors, learn their way around the school, and join returning students at a BBQ and carnival hosted by Student Senate.
