We are proud that 100% of our students participate in at least one service learning project each year to help the school, parish, community, or the world and experience firsthand how acts of service can make a difference in someone’s life. We blend the classroom curriculum with community needs to provide our students with a unique opportunity to be young men and women of action guided by their faith.
Some examples of our well-known student service traditions include:
- Fourth Grade hosts a Senior Breakfast, partnering our students with seniors from the parish
- Students raised and donated money to send 3 Veterans on an Honor Flight
- The Eighth Grade creates Blessing Bags for the homeless and or people in need
