Service to one’s community and world is integral to any Jesuit education. Our program is not just about service, it is about service-learning. As a school we want students to reflect on their service, to gain understanding about people’s lives, and to witness how our society does and doesn’t take care of its most vulnerable members. We are focused on social justice and Catholic Social Teaching and the part that each of us plays to bring this about in our world.
The following grade level requirements are designed to meet our students at a developmentally appropriate place with the goal of fostering the values of service and justice in each of them. Our objective is to teach students about social justice and the effects of injustice in our world. The most effective teachers of these lessons will be the people our students serve -- those people who understand what injustice means because they have lived it; those people who have ended up on the sides because they are different.
