Model United Nations

STVM's Model United Nations team provides an opportunity for students to participate in debate regarding foreign affairs. It also allows students to join an intellectually driven and welcoming community within our school. Since it's inception in 2010, the team has grown to become a close-knit and skilled group of delegates. We compete in local conferences hosted by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs that are attended by high schools from across Northeast Ohio. In addition to local conferences, we compete in multiple conferences throughout the East Coast that are attended by schools from throughout the world. We teach and value our leadership, love, and passion for international relations. 

The team for the 2016-2017 school year is comprised of 16 delegates: Alexandra Albanese, Alexandria Oliverio, Alice Mason, Caroline Pier, Cydnee Livingston, Fiona Gaffney, Michael Chmura, Michael Dianetti, Olivia Janolo, Ryan Thune, Vincent Glidden, Owen Presper, Christian Wierzbicki, Olivia Gupta, Alex Kiehnau, and Alexia Peart.
