WACOR (Woodlands Academy Council of Representatives) is the school’s main student governing body, an elected self-governing student/faculty organization that promotes community among our students, faculty, and administration. WACOR helps to plan and support school and community-related activities; facilitates communication among students and faculty; and aids in disciplinary matters. WACOR includes representatives from each advisory group and a president, vice-president, and secretary/treasurer.
Each Woodlands class elects a class president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer who are responsible for planning and managing their classmates’ activities and events.
The Resident Community Council (RCC) is the boarding school’s elected student government. Comprised of four officers and student representatives, the RCC plans activities for their fellow boarding students and promotes cooperation among students and staff.
The Campus Ministry Team is composed of students from all grade levels and many faith traditions. Guided by the Sacred Heart Goal of fostering “an active faith in God,” team members meet weekly to envision, write, and implement diverse liturgical celebrations for the school community. Students serve as leaders of prayer, readers, speakers, artists, dancers, musicians and Eucharistic Ministers.
Helping Others Protect Esteem (H.O.P.E.) is a student-founded organization whose purpose is to educate others about the harmful effects of bullying. The group gives programs to area middle and junior high schools and to students at Woodlands.
A Service Committee comprised of eight adults from the faculty and staff oversees the Woodlands Service Program. This group meets monthly to review student proposals for new service opportunities and to help identify and define appropriate service activities. The Service Committee also coordinates all-school service events. During the school year, students are able to participate in small-group service opportunities led by faculty or students.
