Student Council

The Strake Jesuit Student Council, moderated by Ms. Jessica Batchelor, is composed of five officers (Seniors) and representatives elected from each student house. The Student Council is elected at the end of the school year and members serve throughout the following school year.

The Student Council works closely with the Administration to improve various aspects of student life. It also plays a central role in planning school activities such as dances, pep rallies, tailgates, and field day.

The members of the Council are honored to represent the Student Body. Suggestions, concerns, or comments always are welcome. Please feel free to contact the Student Council through a Class Representative or one of the Student Council officers.
