Service by Year
The Freshman Year Christian Service requirement is minimal, but focused. It is coordinated with the student’s Theology 1 class, and involves a day of in-class preparation, a morning serving in the Sacramento community, and follow-up reflection and orientation to the Christian Service Program. Students are required to complete an additional three hours of service outside of school hours following the guidelines established and explained in their orientation.
Seniors have three options for fulfilling their Senior Christian Service requirement. Each entails 50 hours of direct service in which students are significantly engaged with people experiencing hunger, homelessness, poverty, physical or developmental disability, or isolation due to old age or illness; class meetings; research and reflection assignments; and advocacy in light of the student’s experiences. All options fulfill the one-semester Christian Service requirement for Seniors and receives a letter grade.
