Compadre Academy Student Council (STUCO) is the school's student governing body, comprised of elected student body officers. We plan all student activities, dances, assemblies and guest speakers throughout the year. Those willing to work hard, be creative, and motivate people are encouraged to run for office. Because of our diverse personalities, teamwork is an important aspect.Throughout the school year, STUCO will be participating in many community service projects, such as Blood Drives, Food & Clothing Drives, Holiday Volunteer work, as well as working with local community organizations. In cooperation with the Jobs for Arizona Graduates (JAG) club, the STUCO will be promoting a service learning mentality school wide.
This course is designed to teach students leadership skills that are essential to their future.

They will develop a working calendar of school events and community service projects, focusing on the improvement of campus life and the collaborative relationships with their teachers and administrators.
