The Sussex Academy provides and maintains an extensive extracurricular program for its students.

At the beginning of each school year, middle school students select a club in which to participate.  Their clubs meets twice monthly during the school day.  Middle school club topics range from playdough to chess to crafts to recess games.  So most clubs are established for social and play exchange among the students.  In the high school clubs are determined by student interest.  Most high school clubs are initiated by the students and have a service or academic focus.

Both interscholastic and intramural sports programs are also available to the students of the Sussex Academy. Our students compete with other schools in Delaware in soccer, field hockey, volleyball, basketball, swimming, golf, lacrosse, softball, baseball, cross country.
