The Student Government is one of several opportunities for girls to develop skills that are critical for leadership. There are three main branches that comprise the student government, and within those branches, numerous options are available for young women to hone those skills essential to building character and relationships on a daily basis.
Student Council
Student Council is a body of 10 students voted into position by their peers. The president and vice president of the individual grade levels are on Student Council along with the president and vice president of Student Council, who are elected by the entire student body. These representatives are charged with overseeing their respective classes during class meetings and representing the ideas of their classmates to the Student Council. The primary function of Student Council is to address matters of student life, including, but not limited to, school policies and procedures, social functions, and graduation.
