Community service is required of all students attending Springfield Catholic High School. Each of us has the responsibility to give of our time, talent, and treasure to reach out to others and help make this world a better place in which to live. Service is the mandate of our humanity and of our baptism. We feel this emphasis on giving back is an important point of difference for Springfield Catholic High School. We believe our graduates are not only prepared to succeed in higher education but they are also taught to be active community citizens.
Students at SCHS contribute a minimum of 60 hours of community service over a 4-year period as part of the Theology curriculum. Community Service is defined as “…work that is completed without pay or other tangible benefits in order to aid the following communities: school, neighborhood, church, or civic.”
Many of our students participate in important community activities and associations such as Relay for Life and Habitat for Humanity to earn their service hours. Others may serve dinner at THE KITCHEN or work in area nursing homes as part of their service hour commitment.
If you have a Service Project idea, please forward the opportunity to either Nancy Derryberry, Campus Minister, at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Keary Deck,Student Council sponsor, at email@example.com.
