Student Government

Student Government: Leadership. Loving.

St. Ignatius believed that life is to be lived for Christ; the 1st Principle and Foundation states, “Our only desire and our one choice should be this: I want and I choose what better leads to God’s deepening his life in me.” As such, our student leaders involved in Student Government adopt the model of Servant Leadership; we want to listen, serve, and encourage. We want to leave De Smet Jesuit a better place than we found it. Student Government is open to all students who are willing to serve as leaders, listeners, and innovators, and can make a commitment toward serving De Smet Jesuit and its students.

Our mission:

De Smet Jesuit Student Government is an innovative and open-minded leadership team that strives to cultivate the best De Smet Jesuit through:

  • 1. ministering to and guiding our fellow students
  • 2. fostering communication between the students, staff, and administration,
  • 3. increasing and modeling school pride, enthusiasm and involvement

Through these goals, we will pave a positive and transformative future for the student body of De Smet Jesuit High School.
