Community Service

St. Joseph’s is committed to the belief that “Life grows by being given away” (Evangelii Gaudium, n.10), and so places a strong emphasis on forming minds and hearts dedicated to service. As such, the school requires its students to complete a specified number of community service hours each year.

Required Community Service Hours

St. Joseph’s requires its High School students to complete a specified number of community service hours in order to pass each year. A total of sixty-five hours is required for graduation. Community service must be completed within the current school year or the previous summer and may not be carried over from year to year. 

  • Freshmen 10 hours per year 
  • Sophomores 15 hours per year 
  • Juniors 20 hours per year 
  • Seniors 20 hours per year 

TOTAL 65 hours 

Middle school students do not have a required number of service hours to complete, but they are encouraged to actively participate in the wide variety of service opportunities available in the school and in the community.  Middle school students at St. Joseph's learn that they can and should play an important role in bringing Christ's love and care to those in need.
