The Student Council provides a forum for students to address school-related topics. The council is comprised of elected members from each grade who meet daily with the Student Council Advisor to discuss student matters and recommend proposed policy changes. The council represents student interests when communicating with faculty and administration and plans, conducts, and oversees social functions and community matters that concern students. Council members will create connections between APU and the community by organizing fundraisers, food and toy drives, and participating in community service.
Student Council representatives are obligated to inform the student body about the actions and deliberations of the council by posting minutes of meetings, with votes recorded, and by announcing council business at school meetings. Decisions made by the Student Council will be announced during homeroom.
