Student Leadership

St. Andrew's places a huge part of the responsibility for stewarding the school and its culture into the hands of its students. Whether or not they hold one of the more than 100 leadership roles available to students, all Saints are expected to protect and uphold our community's values, and to support and guide each other. Opportunities for committee roles and elected positions are available to students in all forms, with a goal of giving equity and voice to all members of our student body. Seniors are particularly tasked with leading their fellow students: seniors serve as leaders on all dorms (there is no "senior dorm"), mentor new students through our Big/Little Siblings program, head up our Honor and Discipline Committees, and much more. All students, even those not serving in an elected or official leadership role, participate in leadership and equity training and workshops through their time at St. Andrew's.

In school leadership roles, students are responsible for everything from organizing meetings to coordinating campus-wide events; from holding fundraisers to managing budgets; from public speaking to making group decisions with a team or a committee. Above all, our student leaders collaborate with peers, faculty, school administration, and the Board of Trustees to create a school culture that is at once dynamic and responsible, positive and innovative.

In shouldering such responsibilities, our students learn principles of good leadership through practical experience. Students acquire habits of honesty, discipline, and generosity; develop organizational and creative problem-solving skills; and gain the ability to face challenges with grace and integrity. Each year, we graduate young people who are both inspired and prepared to serve as leaders in their colleges and their adult communities.
