Community Service Requirements

Community Service Hours Form CLICK HERE

Students are required to attend all of the faith development activities as well as complete the requirements of the Service Hours Program. The goal of the Christian Social Action Program is to educate and promote an awareness and concern for social action issues. It is based on student learning through first hand experiences of working for the betterment of others situations.

a. The students will be required to perform 20 hours of service per year (10 hours per semester) for each school year attended at Immaculata. The total hours are cumulative, so a student who has spent four years at Immaculata will be required to have performed 80 hours of service total. Each year the students will write a reflection paper on their experiences and what they learned through their hours of service.

b. The 10 hours per semester count as 5% of the Theology course semester grade. Students will submit in writing their service hours and tasks worked to the Theology Department. All submitted hours are subject to the approval of the Theology Department.

c. All students will need to have completed 70 out of their 80 hours by the end of the first semester of their senior year. (The total hours for students who have not attended Immaculata for all four years will be adjusted accordingly.) Diplomas will not be provided until all the requirements of the Christian Social Action Program have been completed.
