Serving the Community

The motto of St. Teresa High School is Serviam, which means ” I will serve.” Our school-wide Christian Service Learning program is based on the mission of St. Teresa High School and our call to love others and to give freely the gifts that have been given to us. In the spirit of the Gospel values, we take a step toward becoming more aware of the needs of others and sharing our gifts of time and presence.

The program requires every student to complete 10 hours of service each year 8 of the 10 hours must be in direct service to people in need. In addition, a 1/2 day in fall and a 1/2 day in the spring is devoted to serving the community. Students, faculty, staff, board members and other adult volunteers work together to complete service projects and serve at organizations that benefit people in greatest need.

For each site, there is a phone number to use to find out more information and their current needs. Also, the name listed will be who your son(s)/daughter(s) will need to have sign their service hours form.  As always, students are more than welcome to complete their fall requirement during the summer and their spring requirement during Christmas break.
