While the head of school has final responsibility and administrative authority, tradition and experience at St. Stephen’s show that the community is best served when its members share responsibility and authority. A student can participate in organizations such as the Discipline Committee, which was established by the constitution of the school government and includes three students and three faculty members. The committee focuses on upholding the order of the community outside the classroom. Students also can participate on the Fine Arts Council, which involves students committed to promoting the fine arts. Projects include fundraising for fine arts scholarships, sponsoring guest artists on campus, producing an annual arts festival, and leading field trips off campus.
