Student Council

Student Council is a group of student leaders committed to the interest of the student body.  As students, they bring the needs, opinions, and concerns of the students of their grade to the Administration.  They work with the Prefects, as well as community leaders to incorporate service projects that will better their own campus and increase the schools' impact on the Greenville area. Student Council is also responsible for the school’s social activities.  They plan 中学 and 中学 events including dances and other special events.  One of the most exciting weeks of the school year is Spirit Week where the student council organizes activities, events, and fundraisers for each day of the week.

YOUTH IN GOVERNMENT

Youth In GovernmentThe South Carolina YMCA Youth in Government Program (YIG) is a branch of the YMCA of Greenville, offering programs and conferences for Middle and High School students statewide. In the 中学 program, students take over the South Carolina statehouse grounds to role-play the various positions in the South Carolina State Legislature and the State Court systems. Students spend the months prior to the conference preparing by researching topics and writing bills and researching bills written by other students. Participants work in teams to prepare their trial cases, and write briefs and prepare oral arguments for their appeals cases. Each year, the school brings a delegation and, each year, we have been honored with the “Premier Delegation” Award.
