Being a member of the Student Council provides students with leadership experience.
The St. Alexander School Student Council is composed of an Executive Council and a Classroom Representative for each homeroom. All Junior High students are encouraged to participate in the Student Council to develop leadership qualities.
Officers are chosen by the current Student Council members and the Teacher Moderator through an application and interview process. Officers include President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Spiritual Director.
Students in grades three through eight vote for their Classroom Representative, and the Teacher Moderator selects the Classroom Representatives for grades PreK through second from the Student Council Officer Applicants.
