Leadership and Service Learning
"…to produce educated men of good character, prepared for both scholastic achievement in college and productive citizenship in adult society..."
The Christ School Mission affirms that the School remains close to its original four pillars of philosophy, with an emphasis on physical fitness and leadership skills, respect for others, civic duty, dignity of hard labor, and spiritual growth – all important aspects of the Servant Leadership Program.
Empathy, Appreciation, Social Responsibility
Service Learning allows students to shift their focus from themselves to the needs of others, expanding their sense of empathy while gaining a greater appreciation for what they have by:
- Integrating service into their lives at an early age which will help our students set patterns that they will maintain into adulthood as contributing members of their communities.
- Expanding on Community Service to encourage long term projects that weave the principles of Christ School’s mission into the very fabric of the school’s overall life.
- Exposing students to issues of social concern
- Identifying issues in which they want to get involved
- Engaging in social responsibility through service
- Reflecting on their experiences
- Sharing their knowledge with our school community.
National and international service trips offer students opportunities to continue their servant leadership in unique settings. Some of the most recent service learning trips include New Orleans, Charleston, Nicaragua, Peru, Cuba, and the Galapagos Islands.
