With a wide range of athletic teams, clubs and activities, Homestead affords all students the chance to feel involved in the school and invested in their high school experience. Opportunities for involvement beyond the classroom include:
- 28 varsity, interscholastic sports stressing participation and excellence, and 14 no- cut sports, providing opportunities for students of diverse skill sets. Homestead annually finishes in the top five of all large schools in Wisconsin in cumulative athletic rankings.
- Award-winning arts programs in visual art, drama, and music. Student artists regularly receive recognition in contests, competitions and showcase events.
The Counseling Department at Homestead embraces the school’s mission to equip all students with transferable skills, promote academic independence, foster social responsibility and inspire a passion for learning.
Professional counselors implement the 9-12 comprehensive school counseling program by advocating for and collaborating with students to promote their success. The early years of high school focus on skill building, goal-setting and talent exploration. As students transition to their junior and senior years, the focus shifts to include post-secondary planning related to the career and college search.
