Extracurricular Activities

Meridian's extracurricular program is evolving as the school grows. We have been adding activities in response to student interest. Some activities meet during the school day and some meet after school. Currently, we have the following extracurricular options:

  • Model U.N.The Meridian Academy Multi-genre Band – Students meet twice a week to study music theory, write music, and perform songs from a variety of musical genres.
  • Drama – This program combines theater studies and the performance of a play each semester. Some years, we also participate in the the Massachusetts Drama Guild Middle School Festival.
  • Theatre Tech – Lighting, sound, and other stage support for our drama productions.
  • Literary Magazine – Students write and edit a magazine of stories, essays, poems, and art.
  • School Newspaper – Students in Media and Journalism produce a school paper with the assistance of older students serving as editors and layout production staff.
  • Technology Committee – Meridian students maintain the school's network and computers setting up computers, installing software, developing policies for computer use, and generally supporting the technology needs of their schoolmates and classes.
  • Service Projects – Students propose and lead service activities.
  • Model United Nations – Students participate in United Nations simulations including the Middle School Model United Nations at the U.N. in New York and the high school trip at Brown University. Our high school delegates also mentor our middle school group.
  • Yearbook – Students plan and produce our yearbook.
  • Rock Climbing Club Wednesday afternoons at the Rock Spot for Meridianites of all grades.
  • The Fuzzy and Scaly Animal Committees – Students research, fundraise for, care for, and sometimes wear, fluffy and scaly creatures that live in our Biology lab.
