Students are engaged in Service Learning projects beginning in Preschool and continuing through High School Graduation. These projects benefit and support those in need in our local community, as well as, the global community.
Annually, each class uses the model which was established by Learn and Serve America:
- Student voice and choice
- Identifying community partners
- Planning and preparation
- Project implementation
