Student Leadership at Vistamar
There are so many ways to be a leader on campus. Vistamar provides opportunities for students to lead clubs, lead affinity groups, captain athletic teams and lead amongst your grade. Health & Wellness TAs, Honor Council, VistaCrew, VALT and SEA are all more formal roles that students can apply to.
Health & Wellness TAs
The ninth grade Health and Wellness program creates a space for students to learn what it means to be a part of the Vistamar School community. The goal of the Health and Wellness program is to intentionally craft culture on campus and support our incoming students in successfully transitioning into the community. This program, inspired by Charis Denison's Human Development curriculum, delves into the areas of identity formation, sexual health and consent, responsible technology use, gender roles/relationships, positive risk taking, and leadership skills. Social media, film, guest speakers, and current events will be utilized throughout the program.
Founding members of VistaCrew set as their mission to promote inter- and intra-grade relationships. While members are most visible at new student orientation and are involved with welcoming 9th graders, VistaCrew members serve as mentors, leaders, and role models for what it means to live the mission of the school. VistaCrew members will help plan, create, and execute various community events throughout the year. Above all, members exemplify our community norms of Civility, Integrity, and Initiative.
We look for students who are proud of our community and want to be actively involved in building and strengthening relationships among all students at Vistamar School. We look for a variety of students that are representative of all aspects of life at Vistamar—students who believe that student leadership is a powerful way to teach and mentor.
