Crucifix

“Service learning allows our students to focus on serving God by serving others. They learn interdependence and commitment to others while being challenged to think critically for real-life problem solving.”

Service Projects

Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of service projects throughout the year. Jesus’ life focused on serving others. Using His example, we find numerous ways to help those in need. Students also learn our Catholic beliefs concerning these matters based on biblical teaching, and ways they can incorporate these teachings into their everyday lives.
