Junior High Service Requirements

To establish a pattern of Christian service, Schlarman Academy students are expected, as a requirement of the promotion, to perform community service during their 7th and 8th grade years as follows. These hours are separate from required confirmation hours due to your local parish.

Seventh Grade – 10 hours by the end of seventh grade.
Eighth Grade – 15 hours by the end of eighth grade.

*Students new in 7th or 8th grade second semester must complete 5 hours.

Students may begin earning service hours during the summer between 6th and 7th grade.

Service projects are to be completed under adult supervision. To receive credit for hours earned, it is the student’s responsibility to ask supervising adult to sign a service slip (see forms on the right side of this page.) Return all completed slips to your religion teacher.

While service is stated in hours, the true goal of this requirement is to foster a pattern of Christian service and awareness in our students that reaches far beyond graduation day.

Below is only a partial list of available service opportunities. Students may find other opportunities within their parish and community. If you have any questions, feel free to ask the junior high teachers or Mr. Janesky, Assistant Principal. Also, if you become aware of a project or event in need of volunteers, please let Mr. Janesky know, as he would be happy to post it for the students to sign up.
