While the main focus for students will be education, campus life is about learning so much more. Students get involved and find their passion within their own community. With over 30 student organizations and teams, students can volunteer, participate in sports, improve their campus, make lasting friendships, and have fun!
The Owl community extends well beyond the school campus and enters the students’ homes.
The Cane Institute for Advanced Technologies
Founded by Dan Cane, The Cane Institute serves as the epicenter for research, education and technology transfer for A.D. Henderson & FAU High School. The Institute’s integrated approach to solving society's toughest problems engages the best and brightest students, faculty, and resources at A.D. Henderson & FAU High School to explore today's most complex challenges in arenas such as cybersecurity, autonomous vehicles, robotics, virtual reality, augmented reality, automation and artificial intelligence.
Community service does more than uniting the area in which it is done, but it also educates students in understanding diversity, leadership, problem solving, and being a citizen of a larger group. A.D. Henderson University School is committed to not only making a difference in the lives of all students that walk through our campus, but the lives of our neighbors and friends.
While community is vital to a successful education, competition in the form of athletics is a healthy balance to the holistic development of an FAU Owl. The A.D. Henderson athletic program highlights the value of each component of a team and respect for teammates and opponents. The Athletic Department emphasizes sportsmanship, teamwork, respect, fun, and commitment. We offer 7 different sports and 14 different teams for our elementary and middle school students.
No two Owls are exactly the same, and we offer clubs and activities to reflect that diversity. Among the 30+ groups at A.D. Henderson, there’s something, or maybe two or three “somethings”, for everyone.

After School Program
The Henderson After School Program (HASP) is an educational after school hours service offered to all of our students attending A.D. Henderson University School & FAU High School. Operating hours are from dismissal until 6:00 pm on regular school days as well as on most early dismissal days.
The goal of the HASP staff is to provide a safe, nurturing, learning environment for students needing care after the regular school day. We strive to maintain the same high standards of excellence in the Henderson After School Program that are evident during the Henderson school day.
A.D. Henderson & FAU High School Alumni Association
There is no question that our A.D. Henderson & FAU High School alumni, now over 4,000 strong, are an impressive bunch. They are engaged citizens who are finding spectacular success in their chosen paths. Our alumni live all over the world and are thriving in every imaginable endeavor.
As we continue to grow and manage our alumni network, the Alumni Association and the Alumni Board is focused on integrating alumni engagement with the life of the school. From hosting local and regional alumni events to building our Alumni Mentorship Program, our alumni are the bedrock of our school’s history. Your time, talent, and treasure will remain an invaluable part of FAU High School.
As a part of the schools’ missions, we endeavor to conduct and support educational and developmental research within our school systems. Through these research initiatives, we improve education for our own diverse student population as well as those at educational institutions across the country. This unique mission is what makes us an exemplary model for PK-12 programs across the nation.
The Office of Pre-K-12 Schools and Educational Programs Research Committee is a collaborative group that oversees research in and with our schools and educational programs. Please contact us with any questions, comments, or to initiate a project.
Parent Teacher Organization
The FAU Schools Parent Teacher Organization is a very involved group of people who work hand in hand with teachers and staff for the benefit of our students. Volunteering as part of the PTO is the best way to support your school, your teacher and your child! We have events occurring all year long.
Consider becoming a member of the PTO and help us maximize the impact of the educational experience for all kids at Florida Atlantic University High School.
