The Storm King School recognizes the importance of developing leadership skills among our student population. Consequently, there are several opportunities for students to hold leadership positions. In addition to the official positions listed below, we expect students to emerge as leaders in classrooms, as captains on the athletic fields, and as leaders in all the activities we endeavor to tackle.
Resident Assistants (RAs)
Resident Assistants aid faculty dormparents in running dormitories. They are returning members of the School who apply for a one-year position in the Spring. RAs serve as the heads of each residential group (called families) and assist the administration in maintaining accountability for their groups. Residential duties for RAs include facilitating with evening check-in, enforcing rules, and modeling appropriate behavior at all times.
Day Student Leaders
These students function in a manner similar to the RAs, without the residential responsibilities. Day student leaders also serve a one-year term and are chosen each spring.
Students may run for one of five seats on the Leadership Council. These five seats are filled by two members of the senior class, two members of the junior class, and one member of the sophomore class. Elections are held early in the school year. These five individuals are joined by two students appointed by the dean of students as they represent the student body and meet regularly with administrators with the purpose of improving the work we do at SKS.
Judicial Committee Members
Students may run for one of four positions on the Judicial Committee. These students are voting members who participate in important discipline hearings throughout the year. Two boys and two girls are elected early each fall.
