Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary Clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting. Each year, the Interact Club completes at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of developing leadership skills and personal integrity.

The FPCA Student Council gives students a chance to help make decisions about our school. In addition to being a wonderful learning experience, it demonstrates to the students that they have a voice in the school and that adults value their input. The biggest value of the Student Council, however, is to provide students with a model of the democratic decision-making process. Student Council members are looked upon as the voice of the student body, capable of seeing many advancements and projects come into action. Leadership is the key word for a successful student council, and all of the FPCA Student Council members display fantastic amountsof leadership.
