Student Life

The SAS Student Council is the voice of our students. As an elected student government within our small learning community, these students are leaders who are empowered to plan and coordinate various social, fundraiser, and academic activities for our students. Being part of SAS Student Council looks fantastic on college applications, is an opportunity to plan collaboratively with peers, and teaches about the importance of advocacy.
