At CH-CH, there are many opportunities for our students to show off their leadership abilities amongst their peers and teachers. Below are some examples. Students may also be interested in forming a student club, or completing a civic voice portfolio. Students should contact their advisor or program director for more infomation.
Resident Assistants (RAs) are either Juniors or Seniors and they serve a variety of roles. An important role that RAs play is that of voice between students and houseparents. As the student leaders in the dorms, RAs often find themselves in situations where they are called upon to help resolve disputes. Duties may include monitoring study areas, checking in students at curfew times, organizing dorm specific activities, serving as mentors for new students, planning weekend activities, and helping to run dorm meetings. The RAs are chosen at the end of the previous school year.
The Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall Student Government is a constituent assembly which acts as the voice of the student body in school affairs. Student Government meets regularly to discuss issues that are important to students and make studied recommendations to the Head of School. The president and vice-president are elected by the school as a whole at the end of the previous year, while representatives of each class are selected shortly after the start of the school year.
National Honor Society
Each May, Chapel Hill - Chauncy Hall enters members into our chapter of the National Honor Society. The purpose of this organization, which was founded in 1921, is to recognize the accomplishments of secondary school students in the areas of academic achievement, leadership, and service. Sophomores and Juniors who have been at Chapel Hill - Chauncy Hall for a full year and who have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.3 while at the school are eligible to apply and be considered for membership to the NHS. Members of the National Honor Society bear a special responsibility as students who have been recognized for their achievements and who have pledged to uphold the values of the society.
