Developing Student Leadership
Alongside a Christ-centered education committed to the pursuit of excellence, the upper school also values the development of student-leaders, giving them the opportunity to take ownership of their high school experience. In this spirit, rising seniors can apply and interview for Prefect positions, while rising juniors and seniors have the opportunity to seek out positions as Fellows in the upper school. Selected by a panel of administrators, teachers, church staff and their peers, Prefects greatly impact and influence student life within the school community by assuming a posture of servant leadership as they coordinate various projects and initiatives, working alongside their student committees. In addition, the Fellows program gives upperclassmen the chance to develop their leadership skills while being mentored by executive-level staff members and other administrators in the Second Baptist community.
