Fredericksburg Academy students stand-out from the crowd by learning to lead by leading.
The Student Government (SG) is comprised of the SG President and Vice President, the chairs of the Honor Council, Discipline Committee, Campus Diversity Board, Student Life Committee, and Student Ambassadors. The purpose of SG is to support the students, faculty, and administration. Through Community Meeting, Open Forums, and daily conversations, SG collects input from students and brings it to the faculty and administration, debating proposals and crafting policy.
The Honor Council (HC) exemplifies and teaches the entire school about the Honor Code. The Honor Code applies not only to academics. Elected by their peers, HC members work with the faculty to educate the students in why and how to act honorably in all situations and counsel them when they make mistakes.
The primary function of the Discipline Committee (DC) is to help educate students about the expectations of the school and as such works to encourage the concept of good behavior on the part of all students. It provides a student-faculty forum in which disciplinary and dress code issues are discussed. The DC reviews cases of inappropriate behavior and dress code issues.
