The focus of the Student Leadership Program at The Stony Brook School is servant leadership
. The program exists not only for the benefit of the individual student leaders, but for the community at large. Our leaders develop practical tools, language, awareness, experience and skills through serving one another and our surrounding community and world.
We see these years of leadership training as having the following four purposes:
- For the student to discover the joy found in serving others
- For the student to gain experience in leading and to unfold personal leadership gifts
- For the faculty to see those leadership gifts in action
- For the student to show the school and themselves where their passions lie
We encourage our students to get involved in various levels of leadership from 8th grade onward. Most positions are appointed after an extensive application, interview, and selection process. Some of the positions are only available to junior and senior students.
