Community Service

The community service requirement is designed to promote civic responsibility through active participation in service experiences, to enhance the student' ability and desire to impact the community, to foster a sense of caring for others, and to develop a habit of volunteer service to those in need as a part of the College and Career Readiness initiative. Students must earn 50 hours of community service before graduation.
