Student Council

Each year, student council officers and class representatives are elected by their peers.

The entire PCA&D student body is encouraged to attend student council meetings to share ideas about how to enhance the student experience. Student Council meets twice a month during the school year. Among the many activities Student Council hosts, some students’ favorites include the Friendship Lunch, Halloween Party, Drag Gala, Spirit Week, and Spring Picnic.
