To encourage the holistic development of our students in Christian character, leadership, service and personal skills based on the IB Learner Profile and school IGNITE values. Student Leadership development is a calling we take seriously at ACS (International).
There are more than 200 student leadership positions available: School Prefects, House Prefects, Peer leaders, and CCA Captains.
School prefects are appointed senior leaders from Year 5. They are first among our student leaders and served in one of the subcommittees: Ambassadors, Student Affairs, Student Council and House. They are nominated by HsMs, and other faculty, and appointed after interviews and leadership training. Prefects are appointed by the Principal and formally installed into office to serve for 12 months.
House Prefects are selected by Housemasters and House tutors to help in leading the students in their respective Houses. They support the House by helping with House meetings, inter-House competitions and mentoring of younger students.
