Service Learning

I have set you an example that you also should do as I have done to you.
John 13:15 

 

Service Learning

What is it?
Service Learning is an integral part of a St. Mary's Academy education. Service Learning begins by identifying needs in the community, church or school;  actively responding to these needs; and reflecting on the experience. Service learning does not receive any monetary rewards or remuneration.

Who is involved?
During the school year all students participate in this process. Students are encouraged to begin their Service Learning experience in  the
summer.

How do students participate?
Each student in Grades 7 to 12 will complete a minimum of 10 hours in the  school year. Students are encouraged to complete more than the minimum when possible.

Where?
At each grade level students are asked to focus their experiences in the following way:
Grades 7 and 8
Service within the community, Church or to people with specific needs.
Grade 9
Service within the community, Church or to people with specific needs.
Grade 10
Service within the Church Community.
Grade 11
Service to people with specific needs (physical, mental, emotional, social, economical).
Grade 12
Service within the community, Church, or to people with specific needs.
