The Art Club is open to anyone with a serious interest in art. We work with art mediums that are not necessarily covered in art classes. Students interested in pursuing art beyond high school may work on portfolio development. We are also a service organization, willing to help add beauty to the community whenever possible. For example, we paint faces at athletic events in order to raise money and we have a pumpkin decorating contest in the fall.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a student-led organization that challenges coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA is the largest interdenominational, school-based, Christian sports organization in America. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ. The FCA Huddle at Shelbyville High School started in 1976. Several teachers (Huddle Coaches) help sponsor FCA, but the meetings are run by the Student Leadership Team. Our Huddle currently has approximately 60 members who meet every Tuesday morning at 6:50 in Mr. Nance's room 509. The meetings include prayer, discussions about various topics, and planning for Community Service projects. You do not have to be involved with athletics to be involved with FCA. Anyone is welcome to become a part of the FCA organization.
