Community Service

A fundamental part of School of the Holy Child's mission statement is the expectation that each student take an active role in serving the community outside of campus.

To this end, students in the Upper School will complete a minimum of 100 hours of community service as a requirement for graduation from the Upper School. Last year, the Class of 2016 completed an average of 198 hours serving their community during their years in our Upper School.

At Holy Child, our students respond to poverty, hunger, homelessness, domestic violence and illness by helping those in need. They also see that true change comes from altering social policy, and they make their collective voices heard through social action. Past and present organizations students have worked with include:
