Extracurricular Activities 
and Organizations

Brighton Academy provides a number of opportunities for students to work together and interact as part of our extracurricular program. Leadership opportunities are provided in classes such as Student Council/Civic Leadership. Students have the opportunity to perform for a variety of audiences in classes like our choir, speech, science fairs, and art fairs. We also have school-wide events that include our annual hayride and cookout and school dances. Through all of these activities students can have fun and form lasting friendships.
Additionally, serving the community through working with organizations focused on feeding the hungry, clothing the less fortunate, and meeting the basic needs of others, students have the opportunity to positively impact their community and affirm Christ while feeling a sense of purpose and camaraderie.
Yearbook Committee gives students the opportunity to be creative and document the memories of the year for all time. From taking pictures, to organizing the book online, to writing articles, to choosing the "Best of Brighton" these students gain skills while having a lot of fun.
Service Hours are paramount for a well rounded individual and getting recognition for them by gaining Presidential Service Awards is an honor as well as a transcript building tool. Paula Lang is the sponsor for our organization.
Academic Competitions: Whether you are competing with our award winning choir or on an individual basis with works or art and/or academics we attend several area competitions to gain exposure and watch our students shine!

Student Council


Student Council is made up of high school students that are interested in serving their community at Brighton and the community at large. They are given a lot of latitude to initiate events for fellowship as well as service.  They are volunteers and are chosen by the Brighton faculty. They are then elected by their fellow council members to leadership positions within the group. Lisa Orr is our STUCO Sponsor and has a perfect balance between allowing students to take responsibility and overseeing their ideas. If you have any interest please contact Lisa Orr.





They are very instrumental in planning a lot of the "extras" at Brighton. We have hayride/bonfire in the fall, movie nights, skating parties, service projects, dances, Worlds of Fun day, field day.  
Parents are always welcome to help with these events as well as other parties including Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines, Easter, Senior Recognition, and Talent Night parties/events.
