SCVUHS School Clubs

We invite you to come out and join in our many clubs and activities! Here you will be kept in-the-know with all of the events and great opportunities that our students can enjoy.


The SCVUHS Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) is affiliated with the national organization based in Reston, Virginia. Students initially qualify by earning a GPA of at least 3.3 through ninth grade. An essay and interview by the Faculty Advisory Committee are required for voting membership. Participation in chapter service projects and other activities earns the student the privilege of graduating as a public member of NHS. Santa Cruz NHS members serve as mentors, peer tutors, and role models for the entire community in their scholarship, leadership, service, and character.

Santa Cruz Whirlwind Yearbook

The main objective of the Santa Cruz Whirlwind Yearbook is to historically capture each year to develop a yearbook. Whirlwind staff members capture the year with a compilation of photos as well as information regarding students, teachers, clubs, athletics, and the important happenings during the school year. The Whirlwind staff vigorously fundraises to ensure a low price for yearbook. The organization also solicits local community businesses to sponsor the yearbook for publication. Starting with the 2009-2010 Whirlwind, the staff will restore the tradition of dedicating the yearbook. The newest edition will also reestablish a section for Santa Cruz Senior Boy and Girl of the Year.
