What is the Student Government mission?
It is to organize activities and represent the students to achieve the Academy’s mission, which is:

The purpose and goal of the Student Government are to develop those qualities of citizenship necessary for the preservation of our democratic system by providing students both the responsibilities and privileges of participating in a republican form of democracy within the confines of the school. It shall allow students to voice their ideas in the planning of activities that affect the general welfare of our school and students. Members shall act as ambassadors to our community through service.
