Capital Prep’s Student Government is a student run organization that encompasses students from grades 3 through 12. The purpose of this group is to focus on creating, building, and continuing a strong sense of family and community to enrich the lives of students and staff at Capital Prep.
Student Government plans All-School activities on Fridays that help reinforce the school’s CORE Values and Five Learner Expectations. The Capital Prep Student Government also helps to plan school-wide events and activities throughout the year. They also have conversations on the behalf of the student body with the school administration to change or improve school policies. Students are nominated by staff and then voted and elected by their peers.
There are three different positions that a student can run for:
1) Head boy or Head girl: responsibility is to lead the government and run all meetings.
2) Grade Level Prefect: Act as a representative for their grade during student government meetings to ensure all students are being reached and heard.
3) House Captains: Primary job is to plan, coordinate, and run the activities in All-School.
