Mission Statement

The mission of the Highlander Club is to promote and further the overall objectives of Heathwood Hall Episcopal School by means of fund raising activities to meet special needs of the extracurricular activities of the school; to stimulate and encourage participation in extra-curricular activities; and to conduct promotion activities in furtherance of these objectives.

Making a Difference

The Highlander Club is the athletic booster for Heathwood Hall. It organizes spirit events for all school divisions.  

The Highland Club members stay busy throughout the year volunteering their time and expertise to support our athletes through a variety of community-building, spirit and fundraising activities. Our members along with athletic team parents sell concessions at sporting events and tournaments. Additionally, advertisement opportunities are offered on our digital score board and mobile concessions unit. The Highlander Club proudly produces The Highlander, the fall and winter sports program for athletics. At the beginning of the school year the Club host an annual social, honoring its members and the athletic coaches. Each Winter the Club hosts The Wild Game Dinner. Membership in the Highlander Club is open to all parents, students, alumni, and friends.

The booster club assists the school in purchasing athletic equipment and facility enhancements that benefits every Heathwood student. Initiatives are paid through an allocation process administered by the Highlander Club Board. Over the last five years $475,000 has been allocated to funding initiatives to better serve our students.
