2012-2013 Service Project—American Cancer Society
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 chosen service project is presented to the entire school at the back-to-school picnic and all fundraising efforts for the upcoming year go toward the organization. Throughout the school year, students and faculty participate in activities and events to help foster awareness and raise funds. At the end of each year, the seniors present a check to the organization on behalf of Brentwood Academy.
