Student Life



Kestrel Heights offers a wide range of electives and extracurricular activities, including robust arts and sports offerings. All scholars in elementary school receive special instruction each week in art, music, dance, and PE. Middle school scholars will have the option of focusing on several enrichment activities throughout the year. In addition, eighth-grade scholars  will have the opportunity to take classes for high school credit.

Clubs & Programs

Students are strongly encouraged to start clubs focused on their passions and new clubs are regularly added throughout the year. All clubs have a faculty sponsor and meet regularly. Current middle school programs include:

  • Model United Nations
  • Battle of the Books
  • Sewing Club
  • Anime Club
  • National Honor Society
  • Student Government

Kestrel Heights School takes pride in offering athletic opportunities that are both competitive and developmental for students in grades 6-8. Interscholastic athletics are historically a significant part of successful educational programs. Athletics offer an opportunity for students to be a part of a team, to compete, to serve their school, to enjoy fellowship, and to develop intellectually, physically, and emotionally.

After-School Programs

Kestrel Heights scholars may participate in after-school programs provided by the YMCA of the Triangle. Register online or visit a local YMCA to sign up your child. Financial assistance is available.

Life is a learning process; learning is a life-long process. You can’t separate the two.
