At both the Middle School and High School levels, students from all grades form student advisory councils which support the diversity and inclusion efforts of the MACD office.
Groups like Prep Brother Unite and Treehouse provide opportunities for student dialogue around social justice, current events, and related topics.
A student-led club, Prep Brothers United (PBU) meets on a bi-weekly basis. It is spearheaded by the MACD Student Advisory Council and connects students to discuss social justice current events.PBU also partners with other clubs such as Latinos Unidos en Acción (L.U.N.A), the Jewish Student Union, the Asian Cultural Club, and Always Our Brothers and Sisters as they encourage understanding and appreciation for diverse identities and cultures.

Designed for Middle School boys, Treehouse is a developmentally appropriate alternative to Prep Brothers Unite. Open to all students in grades 6, 7 and 8, it meets regularly during lunch blocks.
"Treehouse is a fun place where we discuss race religion and diversity. Treehouse is a safe space where I feel like I can voice my opinion and it will be respected. It is lots of fun and when someone new comes they always come back. I love treehouse and it is a regular activity that I love being a part of." – Raul Foster, Grade 6
