Student Government

The purpose of Tampa Catholic's Student Government organization is to develop good citizenship, leadership, scholarship, and service to both the Tampa Catholic community and our own local community. The goals of this organization are to promote harmonious relationships, to improve the morale of the student body, to assist in the management of certain school activities, to provide a forum for student voice, and to provide channels for student involvement.

The Student Government body is comprised of four executive officers and four class officers from each class--Senior, Junior, Sophomore, and Freshmen. Faculty members serve as moderators for each of the classes and for the student government at large. The president and vice-president of the executive branch and of each of the classes are elected positions. The secretary and treasurer are appointed by the two elected officers. All members of Student Government must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5.
