Christian Service Program

Over 19,000 hours of Christian Service were performed in 2015-2016!  Sophomore, Junior and Senior students are required to perform at least 20 service hours each year. Freshmen must earn at least 10 service hours.   Students are encouraged to integrate the message and mission of Jesus Christ into their own lives by sharing the gifts that have been given to them through serving others at school or in the community. Service hours are striving to encompass the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy.

Each student is asked to supply the organization chosen for their service with the Letter to Volunteer Coordinators linked on the right side of this page. The letter explains how the service hours are to be reported by the Volunteer Coordinators. Please follow this process alone to report service hours!

Students who volunteer 40 or more hours each year will wear an Honor Cord at graduation representing their hours of service to others and have this accomplishment recognized in the graduation program.
