Student Leadership & Activities

We capture idealism and enthusiasm while nurturing young women leaders

At Mayfield we want to hear our students’ voices!

Student Council, the Athletic Leadership Council, Diversity Council, Arts Council, Model UN or The Page Turners are just a few of the ways students find opportunities to express themselves and take charge with dignity and respect. A Mayfield student is so much more than her class schedule. She is learning how to grow into a young woman of action, a young woman who expresses herself through her interests and talents and convictions. Our 330 students are involved in more than 40 clubs. Want to do something new? Come up with a good plan that shows your Mayfield vision and we’ll find way to support you!

— Kate Morin, Head of School

I firmly believe that our world needs more women leaders. Girls’ schools provide the best environment for young women to develop and practice leadership skills. Catholic girls’ schools harness the idealism and enthusiasm about social justice issues that motivate young women to make the world a better place.
