Student Council plays an important role in the Falmouth Academy community. This group of seventeen students acts as a sounding board for new ideas, activities, and policies that the faculty and administration are curious about. It helps monitor the moods of various grades within FA and that of the community as a whole and tries to help as much as possible when the rare challenge does arise. Student Council coordinates a number of events to raise money for charities and to elevate school morale in general.
In the Fall, Student Council supports and plans activities associated with the Back-to-School picnic, coordinates soccer tailgates, and provides leadership for Marconi beach day. Winter activities include a blood drive, the annual charity Gala, and a bingo/game night. In the spring a boisterous Spirit Week, along with the annual Talent Show and a spirited game of all-school capture the flag keeps morale high and Student Council bustling.
Student Council feels that its job is to promote and tend to the culture of the school, ensuring that FA is a place of cooperation, imagination, kindness, trust, responsibility, wit, and energy.
