Leadership Program

Developing strong servant leaders for the local and global community is an integral component of Salpointe Catholic’s holistic education. 

Beginning with freshman year, students are taught the importance and value of being a servant leader.  They are exposed to the concepts of service and leadership in their Days of Recollection, in classroom activities and in service-learning projects.  The Catholic social teachings of human dignity, community and the common good, participation and our responsibilities as Catholic citizens of the world are emphasized continuously through curriculum and co-curricular activities.
During their junior year, all students participate in a Day of Servant-Leadership.  Activities and community service projects reinforce and teach that all of our students are called to be leaders in some way.

At the beginning of their senior year, students are given the opportunity to step forward during a Senior-Leadership Commissioning Service to commit themselves to a role of servant-leadership.  They are called, in the presence of the entire school community, to be role-models and to live out the values of the school.

  • Senior Commissioning

    Seniors are given the opportunity to be commissioned as leaders of the school at a prayer service at the beginning of each school year. At this service, students are asked to consider how they have grown and matured as servant leaders within the Salpointe community since they arrived as freshmen. A reflection by a fellow senior recalls some of their experiences and identifies ways in which their particular class has demonstrated leadership.

    All seniors are then invited to step forth and be commissioned as leaders in the presence of the entire student body. They are challenged to live their lives in such a way that models the Lancer Values and the fundamentals of servant leadership. This commissioning also symbolizes all of the many ways that seniors are called upon to be leaders – on retreats, in student government, in athletics and other co-curricular activities and in the classroom.
  • Student Council (STUCO)

    Salpointe Catholic has a vibrant student government program that develops leadership skills and calls our elected council members to be servant-leaders.

    After a week of campaigning in the spring, the sophomores, juniors and seniors elect class officers and student body officers to represent them for the following school year. In addition to these officers, members-at-large are appointed to also act as class representatives on the council. There are approximately thirty-five elected and appointed members on the Student Council.

    The Student Council, known as STUCO, is then responsible for a multitude of student activities as well acting as student liaison to the faculty and administration. The STUCO members are enrolled in a daily Leadership class that is taught and facilitated by the Director of Student Activities. The class earns credit and students are graded as they learn about leadership and put their new skills into practice.

    As the student body’s elected officials, the STUCO members are the most visible of Salpointe’s leaders. They work directly with the administration when student issues arise and play a significant role in helping maintain the school’s focus on its mission. All STUCO activities promote school spirit, the sense of community and a respect for the great diversity of our student body.

    Through their involvement in Freshman Orientation, Open House and Step-Up Day, the student council members are enthusiastic ambassadors for the school. Their pep assemblies, dances, tail-gate parties and special theme days enliven the campus with spirit and fun. Their constant attention to service and the concern for causes in the local and global communities is evidenced by their Adopt-A-Family program, Clothing Drives and Random Acts of Kindness week. Their response to fellow students in need, whether through prayer or other kind of support, is immediate and genuine.

    STUCO performs a challenging and rewarding role in the Salpointe Catholic community and students who are interested in pursuing their leadership skills are always encouraged to get involved.
