The Not-so-trivial Trivia Club


Deposit Due at Time of Registration:

Why do we say, “it’s raining cats and dogs.”? What does it mean to bowdlerize a book? Also known as Cultural Literacy Club, join this club to test your skills and learn some fascinating facts during fun trivia games with fellow Excelsior students! We will spend the semester going through The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy and learning interesting concepts and terms that will impress your friends and greatly aid how you contribute to intellectual conversations and understand readings. 


In this club, we will play a trivia game every meeting—some trivia will be general knowledge, some will be trivia on themes voted on by students, and some will come straight from The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy. Even if you are not competitive but still want to learn new concepts to enrich your education, you will enjoy our meetings and our discussion board content in between meetings. Discussion boards will be available and monitored so club members can interact in between meetings by sharing new facts and terms they learn throughout the week and pointing out when they come across the concepts we learn in club meetings in daily life. Club meetings will be recorded and posted on Canvas.


Since this is a club, there are no grades or required assignments, but the more you put in, the more you get out!


Our regular meetings are from 5:00 PM ET on the following Sundays:

  • Aug 20,
  • Sept 3,
  • Sept 24,
  • Nov 12,
  • Dec 3


SPECIAL NOTE #1: There is no charge to reserve a space in a club although you must have paid your family school year registration fee. If you have already paid the registration fee, simply add the club purchase to the cart, and your teacher will be in touch soon. Club memberships are not purchased as a family; each student represents one club member.


SPECIAL NOTE #2: Please be advised: There are no refunds for clubs. If club attendance dwindles during the course of the year making the club unviable, there are no prorated refunds of club membership(s).
