Extra-Curricular Clubs 

Portage Central has a long and rich history of student clubs, developed and run by them. Our belief is that success in the classroom is fueled by participation in activities outside the classroom. That is why we devote resources to making sure these clubs and activities are active and open to all interested students. 


Below is a list of some of our most popular and current clubs. However, since students are encouraged to create their own clubs, (click the "Create a Club" tab to the right to see how to create your own club) this list is constantly changing! Contact our Activities Office for details on what clubs we are offering today!

Student Ambassadors 
Nikki Smith  -  323-5265  -

This school program started in 2012, works with juniors and seniors to help integrate freshman into the school atmosphere. Student Ambassadors, as these juniors and seniors are known, are selected based on a rigorous set of requirements and work with freshman from their 8th grade year through the end of their freshman year, meeting with them multiple times a year to help them get to know the "Mustang Way" and teach our values as a school. 

Science Olympiad 

Science Olympiad competitions consist of a series of 23 team events in each division. Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology. Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to get involved. Through Science Olympiad, students, teachers, parents, principals and business leaders bond together and work toward a shared goal.

Student Council at Portage Central is more than just student representatives and activities. It truly is a student government. Meeting everyday 3rd period, our Student Council listens to students and works with staff to fix student issues, address school-wide matters, and continue to improve upon our school community. Student Council is led by five officers including our Student Body President and comprised of 24 student representatives, six from each class, elected so by them. On top of all this, Student Council hosts many events every year including homecomings, talent show, and dances.
