We are members of the Central State Activities Association and our students enjoy participating in a variety of sports throughout the year. In the fall, we offer football, boy's and girl's cross country, boy's tennis, girl's golf, volleyball, boy's soccer and cheerleading. In the winter, we offer boy's and girl's basketball, hockey, bowling, wrestling and cheerleading. In the spring our students play baseball, softball, boy's golf, girl's soccer, boy's and girl's track, and girl's tennis.

Big Rapids also has a proud tradition in the arts. Our school is home to a beautiful auditorium that seats 575. In 1999 we began offering an expanded drama program and continued with a fine program in the visual arts and instrumental and vocal music.

We have a number of alternative avenues for earning credit.  Students can dual enroll at Ferris State University, apply for our Science and Math Center located on the university campus, test out of classes or earn credit a number of ways that are not "conventional".  We also have two alternative programs.

For the safety of all students, visitors please report to the office through the doors nearest the staff parking lot.  The Principal's office is directly ahead as you enter.
