A Culture of Service

In support of St. John's mission, the Christian Service Program is designed to bring students, through experience and reflection, to a mature understanding of their personal responsibility to those the most in need. The service our students perform reflects the religion curriculum for each grade level.

List of 4 items.

Extracurricular Service

Students who complete service outside of their required Christian Service are encouraged to fill out an Extracurricular Service Form. These hours are added to the student's transcript to show that he or she went above and beyond the St. John's requirement!

Service Immersion Trips

Interested in going outside the DMV to serve others? The Christian Service Immersion Program might be just for you! Students travel around the country to work in communities that need volunteers. SJC students have volunteered in many different types of work, including education, food service, construction, child care and farming. They have stayed close to home and traveled across the country for these projects. Recent trips have included Montana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Mississippi. Each year, our sites change and evolve to match the need of our students and the greater community.

We have an obligation, as Christians, to help others in need. The greatest gift we can give is ourselves: love of others and respect for human dignity.
