Service Learning

Respect, Reverence, and Responsibility are core values of Episcopal Collegiate, and we strive to be exemplary neighbors to our community. Service learning and social justice issues are incorporated into the curriculum. Middle and Upper School students will be required to perform community service hours in order to be promoted to the next grade level.

Service Requirements

No more than 25% of the required community service hours may be served on campus. The minimum required community service hours per grade level are:

6th grade5 hours
7th grade5 hours
8th grade10 hours
9th grade10 hours
10th grade10 hours
11th grade15 hours
12th grade25 hours

Appropriate adjustments will be made for students entering Episcopal Collegiate after 6th grade. Hours for each grade level, except seniors, are to be performed from June prior to entering that grade through mid-May. Students must complete the required number of hours in order to be promoted. Seniors must complete their hours by the beginning of the fourth quarter of their senior year in order to graduate and/or participate in Commencement. Hours are to be documented and signed by the organization's volunteer supervisor or the sponsor of the activity/event. Complete forms should be returned to the designated person in Middle or Upper School. Episcopal's Community Service program director will provide a list of outreach activities for students to select from, or students may submit activities in which they are interested or with which they are already involved. Work performed for political candidates as well as choir, usher, acolyte, and other liturgical activities may be included.
