Our Programs

Student Government Associations

Students discuss and act on issues, problems, and concerns in the schools, as well as engaging in countywide activities.

The SMOB is an elected official who can vote on issues like administrative appointments (including hiring of the Superintendent of Schools), policy, and the Board of Education's legislative platform.

Superintendent’s Leadership Academy

The Superintendent’s Leadership Academy is transformative in its focus to enhance and enrich the life skills students require to successfully transition from high school into college and/or work.


MoCo EmpowHer provides leadership development opportunities for young women, opportunities for female leaders to explore various career options, and advocacy networks for female leaders.

Student Equity Advocates: S.E.A. the Wave of Change!

Today's diverse world requires leaders to speak and make decisions with an understanding of multiple perspectives.

The Student Equity Advocates aim to provide the leadership skills needed to make a difference in our diverse schools and community.

MoCo Pride

MoCo Pride was founded in 2019 by a group of high school and middle school students that attend schools across Montgomery County and serves as a home to connect, learn and advocate for the LGBTQ+ student community.

Maryland General Assembly Page Program

Update: Information and applications are normally published in September. We await updates on the program during COVID-19. Stay tuned!

Since 1970, Maryland's high school seniors have had the opportunity to learn about the legislative process by serving as student pages in the Senate and the House of Delegates during the annual session of the Maryland General Assembly. Each year, 105 pages and 36 alternates are selected from across the State to represent their schools and counties in Annapolis. Each selected page will serve two nonconsecutive weeks in either the State Senate or the House of Delegates. Duties may include keeping bill books up-to-date, distributing materials on the floor to members, assisting visitors and delivering messages to members.
