Various service projects take place throughout the year and are the hands-on application of spiritual life. Students have the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned about giving and caring for others. Students participate in service projects through their advisory groups, their Spiritual Life classes, and the senior-led school wide service project.
Each summer before school begins, the Senior class goes on a retreat and chooses the theme verse and service project for the upcoming year. The class chooses the project for the entire school and it serves as the focus for all fundraising and service for the year.
2014-2015 Service Project
Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Their longtime friend Bernie Marcus donated $25 million to help financially launch the organization. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We are proud of what we've been able to accomplish and look forward to continued successes in the years ahead.

Twice a year, all students and faculty participate in Joe Campbell Service Day. Students leave campus to serve in the community at nursing homes, inner city child-care centers, special education facilities, and other organizations committed to working with the poor and needy. Joe Campbell was a beloved faculty member whose life was characterized by his commitment to serve others.
