For all students: Please review updated criteria for Christian Service Requirements below.

  • Student volunteers may not be compensated monetarily or otherwise for services provided.
  • Services to for-profit organizations will not be applicable unless the organization’s mission is in alignment with the Corporal Works of Mercy.
  • Students are required to complete 30 hours of service per year.
  • Christian service completed over the summer is applied to the upcoming school year.
  • No more than 15 hours can be “banked” for the next year.   The “banked” hours will be applied to the appropriate sections needed for the next year.
  • Students that transfer to Kennedy Catholic High School after freshman year will not be required to make up the hours not served for the previous year(s).

For Seniors: In order to accommodate those seniors who are preparing for graduation and who have been operating under the program which has been in place throughout their time here, the decision has been made to allow them to continue under the old parameters.

For Juniors: Any junior student who completes hours under the old parameters by the end of the 2017-2018 school year will receive credit for those hours accordingly. Whatever hours they have still to complete during the 2018-2019 school year must be completed following the new parameters. All current Juniors will be required to complete 30 hours under the new criteria during their Senior year (2018-2019).
