The St. Anthony School Student Government Association, or more commonly referred to as SGA, is made up of students who are voted by their peers to represent their individual grade levels as well as the entire student body.

The grade school elections are run virtually through a tool called FlipGrid. This allows the younger kids to be able to vote just after video speeches are aired in class. Elected representatives meet regularly, share announcements during weekly assemblies, and provide leadership on school wide activities and fundraisers.
