Community Service

All of our students in our grades 3-12 school contribute 50+ hours of service to the community each year. We value empathy and active citizenship, so we integrate community service into our regular school day program. Learning at a school that honors helping others and where students and teachers regularly assist others together makes this normal. It also enables them to see first-hand all of the valuable work that our public schools and non-profits are doing. This approach yields young adults who will help others and uplift their communities on their personal journey through life.
In March 2020, we reached our two-year anniversary of the launch of our program to assist CCSD students and families in need during the COVID pandemic. Helping our friends from Midland Park, Pinehurst, Stall, Deer Park, and Ladson Elementary in neighborhoods in North Charleston and in Snowden and Green Hill in Mount Pleasant has entailed 85+ service events in this period and is ongoing
