Youth Legislature / Youth & Government (YAG)
Youth Legislature at Caddo Magnet High School is a club devoted to teaching students how to write legislation, practice parliamentary debate, improve their public speaking skills, and learn about important political issues. Members are taught how to write a bill on their chosen topic and get it passed into legislation at the state conference. This club is best suited for students interested in government and politics- or just anyone who enjoys open political debates!
Students in Youth Legislature attend the annual state conference in Baton Rouge to meet with fellow schools and debate, with the goal of passing their bills into law.
Caddo Magnet High School's Mock Trial Program is best suited for students wishing to enrich their education outside of school. The Mock Trial Club encourages students to build their work ethic, strengthen their debate skills, and work well with others. Each year, students are given a civil or criminal case and must act as either lawyers or witnesses. Each team is coached by one or more local volunteer attorneys for guidance. Teams are expected to attend the annual Regional Competition.

Spread the Success
Spread the Success is a club that is committed to helping every child reach his/her full potential. We believe that academics is not the only aspect of success; it is also important for children to learn life skills, such as anti-bullying, self-confidence, and staying healthy.
To help kids become successful, we tutor them and teach them life skills through Powerpoint presentations and other activities.
Model United Nations club meets on MUNday afternoons via Zoom. Membership is open to any student interested in exploring a world of international intrigue and lively debate. Meetings consist of planning and executing fundraisers and preparing for trips to Model UN conventions, of which we try to attend two per year in the region. At Model UN conventions students represent a nation and argue in the voice of their country to pass resolutions and come to agreements with other students. Model UN is a great combination of camaraderie, international studies, and public speaking. There are no annual dues but there are convention and travel fees for each trip.
Open to students of all academic levels, Academic Decathlon is an enriched elective course* that prepares students for a prestigious national academic competition. Each year, students study a wide variety of information on a particular theme. The ten events are Social Studies, Literature, Art, Music, Economics, Science, Math, Essay, Speech, and Interview. Students may participate independently or may enroll in the guided independent study elective course. Participation in Academic Decathlon greatly enhances students’ preparation for numerous AP courses: English, History, Art History, and more!
National Honors Society
The National Honor Society is one of the most prestigious organizations available to high school students. This organization makes a positive difference in the lives of individuals, in the spirit of the community, and in the school. Membership into National Honor Society is a privilege and an honor. Students do not apply for membership; instead, they provide information to be used by the local selection committee to support their candidacy. The Faculty Council selects students who exhibit outstanding performance in all four criteria of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Membership is based on grades, discipline, faculty approval, service, and student activities. A student who qualifies for membership into the Academic and Arts Chapter of the National Honor Society shall be enrolled at Caddo Parish Magnet High School in either the tenth, eleventh, or twelfth grade and shall agree to abide by the rules and regulations set forth by the chapter.
