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.
2013-2014 Service Project
Preston Taylor Ministries was founded in 1998 to confront many of the problems present in the Preston Taylor public housing area, problems like drug use, gang involvement, teenage pregnancy, illiteracy, poor school performance and crime. In order to provide hope for children and families living in this environment, PTM sponsors several avenues for building life-changing relationships.

Twice a year, all students and faculty participate in Joe Campbell Service Day.
