Student Body Officers

Student Body Officers (SBOs) are incoming seniors who are elected by the 9th-11th grade student body to represent the school. The SBOs directly influence the attitude of the entire student body. The job descriptions below will give you an idea of what each of the six SBO positions entails.

To run for office, a student must be a current junior with a cumulative 2.5 grade point average since freshman year. It is recommended that anyone running for a Student Body Office has one year of previous leadership experience. If a student has been placed on disciplinary probation or suspension during the school year in which she wishes to run for office, you must write a letter of appeal to theAssistant Head of School for Student Life in order to be considered for eligibility. A student may not currently be on academic probation. Newly elected SBOs are required to be present for training and preparation during July.Other preparation begins immediately after the election takes place.

It is highly encouraged, but not required, that those assuming SBO positions have a Study Hall period.
