      More than 90% of our Upper School students voluntarily participate in community service projects.

Throughout the year, our students make a difference for people through community service opportunities. These opportunities encourage students to think early, deeply and often about giving their time and talents to helping others. They work at food banks, send care packages to military personnel serving in the Middle East, and find ways to cheer up children in hospitals.

Students Support many groups each year including:

Area Baby Center
Carter House
El Centro Hispanoamericano
Eliminate Poverty Now
Family Promise - Union County
Habitat for Humanity
Hispanic Federation UNIDOS Program
Hope for Lauren Foundation

No act of kindness is too small.

We do kindness acts as a class. Our class made brownies for the nurses; another class brought hot chocolate to the maintenance crew because they do so much for us. It's important to think of others whenever you can.
