Community service is a vital component of the St. Luke’s experience. As the Gospel of Luke proclaims, “From whom much is given, much is expected.” It is therefore understood that St. Luke’s students should seek ways to share their blessings with others.
Students in grades 9-12 are required to complete a minimum of 80 hours of community service by May 1 of their senior year. Failure to complete these hours will result in the student not walking with his or her classmates at the graduation ceremony. Students in grades 6-8 are required to complete a minimum of 20 hours of community service by May 1 of their 8th grade year.
To receive credit for service hours, all hours must meet our Community Service Guidelines and the students must complete and submit a Community Service Record Form to the Community Service Program Coordinator within 2 weeks of the date of service. Summer service hour forms must be returned within 2 weeks of the start of the school year. Additional forms are available in Student Services. The form must be completed with ALL requested information in order to be considered.
Any opportunities or ideas for service that are not covered in the guidelines should not be assumed to be approved. It is recommended that students discuss ideas for opportunities for service with the Community Service Advisor prior to completing them.
