There are five service groups in which students may represent the Mount community both within and outside the school.

Class Officers

All students are welcome to submit their name to the Student Affairs Office if they want to run as a ticket for thepresident and vice-president of their class. These officers are responsible for class activities and meet periodically with the Dean of Students. They act as an ambassador in relaying any suggestions to the Dean of Students. Each homeroom elects a secretary-treasurer. This student is responsible to keep track of monies collected, reminds the moderator to display the daily announcements and assist the moderator as needed.

CSC (Community Service Corps)

Young women…ambassadors of unity; ready for any good work. Mount Saint Joseph Academy continues to find creative way to embody the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph, “to live and work so that all people may be united with God and with one another.” Circling the city of our time, Mount students carry on the legacy of their founders, seeking out those in need of help while reaching out to those who are marginalized in our society. Mount Saint Joseph Academy’s Community Service corps offers the opportunity for all students to broaden their awareness of others through a variety of service experiences. CSC programs include: serving at St. Francis Inn in Kensington and at St. Vincent’s Soup Kitchen in Germantown, tutoring at LaSalle Academy in Kensington and St. Vincent’s in Germantown, visiting the sick at Ronald McDonald House, visiting the elderly at Saint Joseph’s Villa, working with animal rescue, special projects performed with the Camden Connection, working with special needs children in Winter-fest, taking part in Operation Santa Claus in December and participating in a Mississippi Service trip over the Easter break. Meet new friends. Get involved. Make a difference.

Gold Key Club

The Gold Key Club is comprised of students who wish to be part of the Admission process. They act as Mount ambassadors in giving campus tours, speaking to prospective students at grade schools and hosting student visitors as well as representing the Mount in various other admission activities. Membership is open to all interested students.

Peer Mentors

Open to juniors in the spring of each year, the Peer Mentors are an organization, which encourages mentoring relationships between upper classmen and freshmen and sophomore students. Peer Mentors aim to listen and provide guidance to fellow students on a range of academic and social problems they may be facing through a variety of programming efforts. All students are invited to visit the Peer Mentors, and attend programs because Mount Students know Mount Students best. Following in the mission of Mount Saint Joseph Academy, the Peer Mentors promote overall wellness to balance Mount students’ desire for excellence in and out of the classroom.

Student LEADERSHIP Council

A student must nominate herself for the position and receive sponsorship of the faculty and administration. Officers are elected by the entire school community and may not hold a class office or an office in another school activity. Officers may participate in one sport under conditions of a contract with coach. Homeroom representatives are elected by each class and may not hold a class office. Student Council members act as a communicating body and sponsor the Breast Cancer Marathon, the Winter Dance, Charity Day, the Father/ Daughter Dance and other events which encourage service, spirit, responsibility and involvement among the student body. Meetings are held twice a month on Wednesday.
