The Community Service program at St. Andrew’s was instituted to develop positive values, to increase appreciation of our world, to enhance self-esteem, and to make the world a better place.
Community service opportunities are integrated in our curriculum and also offered outside of the school day. We always encourage students to develop a passion for service that is inspired from their own experiences and the communities they come from
In these two courses, Saints 101 and 102, students engage in a variety of student-led community service projects.
Studied throughout the IB Diploma Programme, CAS involves students in a range of activities, including service-oriented ones, that enable them to enhance their personal and interpersonal development by learning through hands-on experience and collaboration with others.
Both boarding and day students are encouraged to join on regularly scheduled service trips. These may include activities such as serving at a soup kitchen in Providence, participating in a beach cleanup, volunteering at the local farm school, or organizing canned food and toiletry drives.
Students who are members in NHS organize, lead, and participate in a service project each year.
Each year student members of NAHS create an arts project that gives back to the community. In recent years these have included the creation and planning of a community mural and the production of a hand drawn coloring book with sales that went toward a local nonprofit.
