Mount Vernon Presbyterian School has a unique form of student leadership known as the Prefect System.
Mount Vernon Prefects serve our school by participating in and contributing to the many facets of school life — student life, admissions, campus tours, communications, publicity, service, spiritual life, “green” life, and the overall quality of experience that makes Mount Vernon so special.
Prefects are student leaders who are chosen based on their character, integrity, and commitment to the mission and core values of Mount Vernon. The Prefect positions include:
- Head Prefect
- Ambassador Prefect
- Communications Prefect
- Outreach Prefect
- Student Event Prefect
- Student Spirit Prefect
- Spiritual Life Prefect
- Environmental Prefect
- Unity Prefect
Faculty and staff mentor the Prefects in building their committees, shaping their vision for the year, and providing accountability and an invaluable resource to see it to completion. Each of the Upper School Prefects develops a committee of student leaders across all grades to help shape programs, develop ideas, carry out initiatives, and drive school policy. These committees are vital for the effective functioning of our student leadership program, and provide exceptional vision and support for the Prefects.
