Sustaining a wide variety of student interests, WCDS students may choose from a variety of clubs and organizations: Student Government Association, Brain Game , Quiz Bowl, National Spanish Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Students, Journalism/Yearbook, Red Cross Club, Debate Club, Film Club, Key Club, Builders Club, Chess Club, Diversity Club, Science Club, Book Club, and Coding Club. Through these clubs and other activities, students serve the school, the community, and beyond. Our students volunteer with various organizations and have earned Eagle Scout and Girl Scouts Gold Awards. Past projects range from providing necessary supplies to displaced hurricane victims, supplying local animal shelters with food and bedding materials, donating collected books to the local public library and The Boys and Girls Club, volunteering on weekends to both a local soup kitchen and to Habitat for Humanity, to supporting the Autism Society of North Carolina with participants for the Triangle Run/Walk for Autism. In addition to fostering community involvement, WCDS students receive such extensive exposure and support in the arts, the humanities, STEM, and others; their accomplishments extend beyond their school.
Seven interscholastic sports are offered to girls and eight for boys. The sports offered include baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming, tennis, track & field, and volleyball.

Student Government Association (SGA)
The SGA is the governing body for the Intermediate and Upper School. The SGA represents students and serves as a communication link to the faculty and to Administration. It provides students with opportunities to build leadership skills and develop a keen sense of belonging and responsibility to the greater school community. The SGA plans student activities, such as Spirit Week, serves as hosts for visitors, open house, and special events, as well as role models for student behavior and service. In the Spring semester each year, class officers for the following school year are elected. The President and Vice-President of each class automatically become SGA representatives. Students in grades 9-12 can run for SGA President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer in open elections held after the class officers have been elected.
