Giving back to one’s community through community service is an integral component of The Gregory School education. The goal is to introduce students to the rich possibilities of volunteering and to encourage them to make volunteering a normal and regular activity. Students are able to choose where and how they want to engage in community service. This program encourages self-direction and the development of personal interests, as well as instilling the value of service. One hundred percent of The Gregory School students participate in community service activities locally, regionally, and internationally.
Students may volunteer with a non-profit or not-for-profit organization, voter registration and political campaigns, faith-based institution where your service does not include teaching or promoting one faith (examples: serving food, fundraising, volunteering at facility), community service projects organized and supervised by The Gregory School faculty and/or staff, service-learning projects including training and preparation time. Students may also organize community service projects with approval from The Gregory School Community Service Coordinator.
