The St. Elizabeth Seton Student Council consists of sixteen middle school students ranging from 5th-8th grade who work together to become active Catholics, lifelong learners, self- confident individuals, and community contributors. Participation in Student Council enhances the student’s school experience by fostering community service, engaging them in cooperative activities, and instilling a sense of pride in the school.
Mentors are continuously working to build skills with the students to meet these goals:
- Developing and promoting student activity and engagement in their school and the community
- Encouraging student participation in student council events and morning assemblies
- Developing student leadership, personal growth, and responsibility
- Representing the student body and serving as role models for all students.

Student Health Program
In 1633 Vincent de Paul, a humble French priest, and Louise de Marillac, a widow, established the Company of the Daughters of Charity as a group of women dedicated to serving the “poorest of the poor.” Prayer and community life were essential elements of their vocation of service.
Almost two centuries later, Elizabeth Ann Seton, the American foundress of the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph, adapted the rule of the French Daughters of Charity for her Emmitsburg, Maryland community. In 1850, the Emmitsburg community united with the international community based in Paris.
Today, the Daughters of Charity are an international community of over 19,000 Catholic women ministering all over the world. The Daughters of Charity still serve the “poorest of the poor.” Their ministry touches those in need through education, health care, social and pastoral services.
