Service Learning at Holy Trinity

Our commitment to community service is facilitated through Service Learning, fostering a direct link between the classroom and service to others. By participating in service learning, students gain a sense of social responsibility and a shared ethic of caring and a theology of service.

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.

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.
