The Association of Catholic Student Councils, TACSC, was formed at the request of the California Superintendent of Catholic Schools in 1982. TACSC’s founder, Marilyn Thickett, created an organization to guide student government and its formation in Catholic schools. After gaining popularity in Southern California, TACSC expanded its leadership programs to Northern California and the East Coast.

Over the past 7 years, TACSC has expanded its curriculum and breadth to include ALL leaders, not just those selected to Student Council. This is in line with the changing scope of leadership models in middle schools where more students are included in committee systems. TACSC continues to deliver a wide variety of leadership development programs for Catholic elementary and junior high schools throughout California and the United States.

In 2015, TACSC will teach over 2000 middle school students valuable lessons based on faith filled leadership. We continue to provide education and training to help make leadership an integral part of young Catholics’ lives.
