At St. Benedict, we offer a vibrant co-curricular program. Our athletes and club members tend to lead our school in spirit, character, and attitude. Should a student experience academic difficulty, poor classroom attendance, or under the discretion of the office, the student may be withdrawn from the co-curricular program until there is significant improvement.
Students Administrative Council (SAC)
The Student Council of St. Benedict CSS consists of an elected president and four other cabinet members, two staff moderators, and social conveners from each grade level. Meeting are held once a week to decide spirit days, school events, and projects that are to be run over the school year. It is an opportunity to communicate with other students and problem solve in a group setting. The Council offers exciting ways to be involved and make a difference in your school. If you want to have your voice heard and to represent the voice of others, the Student Council is right for you!
