To promote a sense of responsibility, community, and leadership, the School encourages all students to participate in school service activities and service to the community.
In the Upper School both service to the School community and outside community service are required. All students are assigned a school service task to be completed once or twice a cycle during a non-academic period.
The Parents Association and the Faculty lead by example and frequently engage in local service projects. Every year the Parents Association organizes a School-wide Soup Day to benefit a local homeless shelter, a Thanksgiving food drive, a Christmas tree angel gift drive for migrant worker’s children and participates in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
In the past students have received many service awards from organizations including Guardian Ad Litem, Habitat for Humanity, Hibiscus House, the Samaritan Center and others.
