We challenge students to roll up their sleeves and serve the local community through volunteer work and apprenticeships. Once a month on Wednesday mornings, 10th and 11th grade students work with Community Partners, developing their compassion, collaboration, and problem-solving. During this time, our 12th graders have designated time to spend on their Internships that are required for graduation. Read more about our Community Partners below.
