  5. Scholar Leadership Council

The Scholar Leadership Council serves to provide scholar feedback on school policies and procedures at Compass Charter Schools to ensure that they are consistent with its Mission, Vision, and Values.

Members act as a committed group of advisors to the staff and administration, regarding issues that affect their peer scholars at CCS. They provide feedback and insight from the scholar’s perspective on school process, policies and initiatives to ensure that the needs of scholars are included as decisions are made. They also serve as an advisory, not a decision-making body, that makes recommendations, encourages brainstorming and provides opportunities for scholar involvement on committees.

Meet Our Council

Elizabeth Christopher | Member

I am a 9th grade scholar with Compass Charter Schools and have been with the CCS family since 6th grade. When I’m not doing school, I love music, photography, writing, baking, and spending time with my family and my cat Midna. I also enjoy spending time with my teachers and peers in Learning Labs, and meeting up with them on field trips. As a part of the Scholar Leadership Council, I hope to make CCS a better learning environment for all scholars and help make CCS the best school it could possibly be.

Alexis Gordon | Member

I have been an online learner going on seven years, the past four years with CCS. When I am not doing school, I am involved with high level gymnastics a few times a week, acting classes, and my very own gaming YouTube channel. I strongly believe that we, the scholars, should advise and contribute to our learning environment to help shape CCS into the best school it can possibly be.

Vania Linares | Chair

Vania has been a CCS scholar for two years and is now in 10th grade. In her free time she loves to further explore and develop her passion for music, as well as strengthen her writing abilities and knowledge of criminal justice. Vania is in the Scholar Leadership Council because she wants to be part of an association that strives to better unify and assist the student body.

Avery Stansbury | Member

Avery is a 4th grade scholar at Compass Charter Schools.  He has been part of the CCS family for three years.  When he is not in learning labs and completing school work, he enjoys playing the piano, reading, and is determined to be a youtuber.  Avery is part of the SLC because he wants to represent his peers at Compass, help make the school a better place, and learn new leadership skills.

Kate Vreeman | Member

I am Kate, a sixth-grade Options Scholar, and I love being a part of Compass!  I have been homeschooling for six years and I love to read, write, color, and go Jeeping. When I am not doing school, I am usually practicing my viola, playing volleyball, or going cycling. I hope to be very involved here at CCS, help my fellow peers, and support Compass any way I can.

Maryam Zorba | Vice Chair

I am a 6th grader and I have been with Compass Charter Schools for three years. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing digitally, reading fiction books, watching sci-fi movies, and I am also a YouTuber. I am involved in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Club, Computer Coding Club, and Reading Club. My goal is to become a well-rounded student and contribute positively to other scholars experience in CCS.
