The Sterling Stars is our Middle School chorus. This group of 7th and 8th graders performs many types of music throughout the school year and represents Sterling at musical events. This group spreads musical joy throughout our school at Christmas and Valentine’s Day by performing singing-grams to students, teachers, and administrators. The Sterling Stars performs 2 major concerts each year, and participates in honors chorus, and America Sings.
The upper elementary chorus is our performing group for 4th-6th grade students. They perform two concerts a year and several informal concerts on campus. This group meets on Thursdays during the school day .
Our new Beginning Band meets on Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 3:15-4:30. This 25-member band is made up of 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students who are learning a new instrument for the first time. They will perform two concerts this year. After successful completion of this year of studies, students will be eligible to move on to the Sterling Band.
Comprised of students in grades 5-8, Sterling Band meets after school from 3:15-4:30 on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Students learn to play woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. Instruments currently in band are flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, alto saxophone, mallet percussion, and non-pitched percussion (drums, cymbals, etc.). This year we are excited to add a bass clarinet, tenor saxophone, and piccolo to our band program. Band performs several times a year and travels in May to Carowinds to perform for ratings and review.

Triangle Chess for 2nd-5th Graders
Triangle Chess is introducing chess to youth; we help kids achieve more through chess. Chess gives kids confidence that carries over into many other pursuits. Reading and math skills of children who play chess consistently soar. Their social skills increase substantially with respect to playing fairly, courage facing difficult situations or opponents, and the patience needed for exceptional timing.For more information about the cost and meeting times, go to: www.trianglechess.com > In School > Join a Team
STEM Clubs are all the rage today throughout the country. They not only spark students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), they involve them in a wide variety of projects. They differ from traditional math and science clubs in that they incorporate all four subjects thereby allowing a wider range of challenging activities. The activities also provide students an alternative method of learning that promotes better understanding of concepts being taught in class. They also provide alternative learning methods that can reach students who normally would struggle with these subjects.
For Sterling Academy students only, this club is a great way to introduce your child to language. Learning language from a young age should be a fun experience and, by listening and learning, your child will pick up the material in no time. Your child will learn days of the week, animals, colors, seasons, numbers, and more.
