- A sense of social responsibility;
- "Service, Stewardship, and Servant Leadership”
- A shared ethic of caring and a theology of service;
Our commitment to community service is facilitated through Service Learning, fostering a direct link between the classroom and service to others. The chaplain and guidance office actively connect students with on- and off-campus service opportunities. Students are mentored to choose and engage in service efforts to find their potential as leaders and extend their learning beyond the classroom.
Many students develop an enthusiasm for a project and go well beyond the graduation requirement. Often these continue through college and turn into jobs and internships.
A total of 120 hours for grades 9 through 12 are required for graduation.
Presidential Volunteer Service Awards
Annually, a number of Lower School and Upper School students go the extra mile and earn the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. The Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
