Community Service

Our school motto, Servite in Caritate, means “Service with Love.”

We believe in both doing well and in doing “good” and that the two are inextricably linked. We aim to help every girl develop the selflessness to give and the moral compass to do the "right thing" simply because it is the right thing to do.

Our students are learning to be part of a community and to seek out opportunities to strengthen that community. They are engaged in fundraising initiatives and community service projects year-round. These activities are largely initiated and led by our students, through the Leadership Program, school clubs, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and independent service and volunteer hours.

Our students manage the School’s recycling and composting programs; they organize events to support local organizations and raise awareness of global issues that are important to them; and they volunteer their time to help others both locally and abroad. The organizations we support and the issues we address are always changing – our students identify and contribute to service projects that are meaningful to them and which they are passionate about. They gain an awareness of social and environmental issues and challenges, discover their ability to make a difference, and develop a commitment to service.
