Leadership Opportunities

Student Senate - This is a sanctioned South Carolina Independent Schools Association (SCISA) middle school organization. The Student Senate provides peer representation for the student body by addressing and recommending action on any concerns the student body may have. Each class in grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 elect their Student Senators who in turn represent their class throughout the school year.  Each Student Senator must have at the time of election, and maintain throughout the school year, acceptable academic and standards. 

The Student Senate operates using Robert's Rules of Order and Parliamentary Procedure. Emphasizing leadership and responsibility, the Student Senate works hand in hand with the administration and with the Junior Beta Club in many of their community service tasks. Individual student interests, requests for special uniform days or student activities (e.g. dances) are offered to the Student Senate for discussion, and presentation to school administrators.  Any request or suggestion as to the improvement of the school environment or schedule are welcomed and prepared for presentation to school administrators. Executive officers, in concert with the faculty laison, then schedule a meeting with the school administration, and report back to the students at the next meeting opportunity.

National Junior Beta Club - The National Beta Club, founded in Spartanburg, South Carolina in 1934, has become the nation’s largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. The Junior Beta Club of St. Anne Catholic School is set up with the National Beta Club’s mission statement in mind:

To promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among students.

In addition to being the highest academic achievers in the middle school, students selected for the Beta Club must maintain character and leadership qualities as evidenced in an absence of discipline slips, and must consistently serve the school by sharing their talents and abilities to help fellow students become their personal best.
