Leadership Program

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

Beginning during 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, classroom activities and 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. 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 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.

  • Salpointe Ambassador Leaders

    The Salpointe Catholic Ambassador Leaders are a team of students who link current students with administration, alumni, and the community. The student ambassadors work on the following: promoting campus educational and leadership opportunities, personalizing the campus and traditions for prospective students, alumni and surrounding community. Ambassadors are the face of the institution in the surrounding community through the promotion of events, programs, fundraising, school recruitment and community outreach.

  • 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 Catholic community since they began as freshmen. 

    All seniors are then invited to step forward and be commissioned as leaders in the presence of the entire student body. They are challenged to model 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 freshmen, sophomores and  juniors 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 act as class representatives on the council. There are approximately thirty-five elected and appointed members on Student Council.

    The Student Council, known as STUCO, is responsible for a multitude of student activities as well acting as student liaison to the faculty and administration. 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, 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, sense of community and respect for the great diversity of our student body.

    Through their involvement in Freshman Orientation, Open House and Step-Up Day, 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 and clothing drives. Their response to fellow students in need, whether through prayer or other kinds 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 become involved.
