Each year a select group of senior students participate in the Junior Achievement program. The purpose of Junior Achievement is to educate and inspire the young generations to value business and economy as a way to improve the quality of life.
Through the Counselor´s Office, and with the valuable cooperation of teachers, students are nominated at the start of each school year for participation in club. Seniors chosen for this event must have an interest in entrepreneurship, be energetic, and have good social skills.

The Association of Bilingual Schools of Honduras (ABSH) sponsors the National Model United Nations program in conjunction with the Mazapan School in the city of La Ceiba.
The program brings together students from across Honduras for a three day conference to discuss and debate world and national issues.
Each year a select group of DelCampo tenth and eleventh grade students attend the Presidential Classroom Program in Washington, D.C. The program offers students the chance to meet with their contemporaries from countries throughout the world.
During the one week conference students address actual political, economic, and social issues and together develop and offer solutions to the complex problems. Students attend seminars with highly influential leaders, visit many historic and cultural sites in Washington, and interact with teachers and peers with whom they share and debate their personal opinions and ideas.
Presidential Classroom provides DCIS students with a fast-paced, energetic educational experience that aids them in developing leadership qualities for future endeavors as professionals in their countries.
DelCampo International School is well aware of the need to develop and train the future leaders of Honduras.
As a part of our leadership program students take part in what is known as "Student Council" (STUCO). Through this program students acquire and develop the communication, organizational, and leadership skills needed to manage school cultural and social events.
Supervised elections are held to determine both grade level class officers as well as a school wide President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Activities Director. Faculty advisors assist students at all grade levels, and determine requirements for participation.
Secondary students are represented by a Student Council (STUCO). There are two representatives for each grade and section from 7th to 11th grade, and a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and activities director in 12th grade. Each representative has been elected by their peers and speaks on behalf of his or her classmates. The council is chaired by one staff member. Representatives will meet once a week and dates are given to them at their first meeting of the school year.
STUCO´s main objective is to discuss different aspects of school life that concern the student body and support DCIS mission and vision.
Students in the Yearbook Club are responsible for all aspects of creating the annual school memoir. Working along with a faculty advisor, students work on editing, layout, photography, and publishing.
It is a chance to also develop computer aided design skills. Club members attempt to publish a manuscript that demonstrates the school spirit, love, and dedication that each student and staff member has for the DelCampo community.
Learning is a way of life for DCIS students, both in and out of the classroom. We augment our academic program with special events during our school year.
To fulfill a Ministry of Education requirement, all 12th grade students' nationwide work as a team to undertake a project called "Trabajo Educativo Social - TES". TES is an opportunity for our senior class to connect with the local community.
Examples of past senior class experiences include, fund raising, teaching English to children in the public school system, helping the environment by planting trees and recycling , and assisting in nursing homes.
The end result is an environment charged with energy and an opportunity where young people of diverse gifts and interests can each find a place outside of school to give to the needy of the community.
The Junior State of America is a simulation of a Congressional session that is open to students of all nations.
This year, DelCampo International School is opening its doors to tenth and eleventh graders interested in attending the Washington, D.C. convention in February.
Students who are politically inclined and are ready to put their great ideas to work to come up with legislation that will improve quality of life worldwide, have already signed up to participate in this great educational experience.
