Government Leadership and Service Opportunities

Student CouncilSt. Croix Lutheran students at the Youth in Government Invotational

The student council assists in the planning of school activities, promotes good student-faculty relationships, fosters student leadership, and nurtures a healthy school spirit among all students. Student council membership includes a male and female representative from each class, a president from each class, and four officers (president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer). Each class elects its own representatives, and the entire student body elects the officers.

Student Council Mission Project

Each year the SCL student council selects an international mission project and raises money throughout the year through special events, dress-down days, sales, and contests.

Past mission projects have included Friends of China, Christian Life Ministries, the Longonot Education Initiative (LEI) and others.

Youth in Government

This nation-wide program consists of students interested in the democratic process. They meet weekly starting at the beginning of the school year to move through a model legislative process that culminates in January at the St. Paul government center with a weekend of debates, voting, and trials.


Students apply to represent SCL in their home country, grade school, and church. St. Croix Lutheran ambassadors host events, present to grade school students, provide tours to new families, and write thank you notes to elder church leaders.

" St. Croix cares about their students. They provided me with a caring community and a supportive system which I desperately needed because I was far from my home and family. "
