Tamaqua Area Student Government Association serves the students at the High School. Elected representatives meet regularly to discuss current school problems and programs. Yearly service projects are conducted for the school by the organization.
    The honors privilege program is sponsored by the student government (TASGA) and is a program for eligible juniors and seniors. Students must meet the standards set forth by TASGA.  Students who meet the criteria for an honors card will have their application reviewed by an honors card committee appointed by the student government.  The privileges accorded these students include being allowed to leave the building during free time. Students who have a study hall in the beginning of the day are also allowed to arrive late. Honors card students are not required to attend study hall but may report directly to the library or a classroom with permission and remain there the entire period or may report to the lobby.
