The Prefect Program

About the Prefect Program



Leadership

Bishop McNamara offers students opportunities to become involved immediately upon their arrival in high school. Each student is invited to join (even create when possible) one of our many clubs and organizations. All students are appointed to join in the school-wide House Program. There are numerous opportunities for involvement, through which each student is able to learn more about her or his potential as a leader and follower.

Core Elements

The Prefect Program emphasizes eight core elements which each student is exposed to in direct ways: personal mastery, moral foundation, communication skills, goal setting, organization, problem-solving, self-awareness, and inspiring & mobilizing others.

Student Contributions

The Bishop McNamara Prefect Program challenges student leaders each year to serve their school through significant contributions in all areas of the school community: student life, admissions, community service, fine arts, athletics, spiritual life, marketing, and the overall quality of the school experience. These leaders oversee councils comprised of additional selected students, establishing a full range of student ownership and involvement.
