Student Council

Class representative are recognized as a leaders by his/her peers and will demonstrate this leadership through service, “…just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)  The Student Government exists to implement and model for other students the vision of Denton Calvary Academy, which is “to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by improving the lives of others through a life long love of learning, discovery, and service.”

Student Council Class Representatives encourage and model for their classes a climate and culture that promotes the DCA vision.  This is modeled through the attributes of Christ-like leadership, which include faith, obedience, service, courage, perseverance, trustworthiness, and dependability.  They commit to pray regularly for the students of our school and take daily steps to live a Christ-centered life. They are aware of the needs of those around them and look for ways to meet those needs.

Others will look to the Student Council as an example of a servant-leader as they serve in practical ways at DCA.  The class representative is the contact person for all matters related to the students of the class. He/She will attend meetings of the Student Government representatives and class as scheduled.  Representatives will work in cooperation with their class faculty advisor, who is the contact person for issues related to the school; the class grade mother, who is the contact person for issues related to class parents; and with the students of their class. Other role of the representative include: 1) acting as a liaison between class members and the school administration, 2) help plan and implement service projects and fundraisers, and 3)  delegating responsibilities to other students and/or committees as needed. Representatives are expected to use their gifts and creativity to foster Christ-likeness in others throughout the school year - seeking to serve others, faithfully and joyfully representing Denton Calvary Academy to the world with integrity and honor, to the glory of Jesus Christ.

Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.  Not so with you.  Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.  For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Mark 10:42—45
