Students can engage in more than 500 clubs and activities that further enhance their learning journey at JIS, from TEDxJIS and student leadership to Service Learning and co-curriculars. Each is designed to not only challenge students to be Best for the World but also foster respect, a spirit of collaboration, inclusivity, and confidence.
JIS Academy (JA) was established with the aim of offering quality, high interest academic, fitness, creative and sports activities beyond the normal Jakarta Intercultural School curriculum in order to better serve both students and adults. These activities are run by both expatriate and local instructors and coaches who have specialized knowledge in their field and, therefore, carry a separate fee per program.
During the academic year, the majority of our activities are open to only the JIS community due to limited space. The JIS Academy Summer Program, however, is equally open to JIS Dragons and nonmembers of the JIS community.
Many of the activities featured in our summer program are inspired by Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage, enriching our beautiful campus while also sharing the diversity of our school with all JIS Academy participants. We hope that this also creates an environment that fosters new understandings and new relationships for you and your children.
Many JIS-sponsored activities are available for Elementary students after school in the arts, athletics, STEM, and more. Parent-and community-sponsored activities complement these offerings in areas like scouts, gymnastics, and various team sports.
Middle School Madness is a spirited event that sees teams of faculty and students, named after famous Indonesian volcanoes, compete in a series of challenges, from tug-of-war to water games where absolutely nobody stays dry.
During the annual Cilandak Games, the entire High School is buzzing with activities, from a raucous opening ceremony in the HS Gym to mental, physical, and artistic challenges that take place throughout our tropical Cilandak Campus.
