Service Learning

Service Learning Requirements

Service at National Christian Academy is more than community service or volunteerism; it links your child’s education to service and service to learning. Our 60-hour service learning requirement happens through both individual community service and group service projects.

We believe that service is important for several reasons. It takes students out of their comfort zones. It exposes them to new and unfamiliar ideas. It illuminates political, social, and economic issues that they may be completely unaware of.

Participating in service projects helps students get to know the diversity of people and perspectives in their community. It teaches the value of working toward a common goal. In this way, service prepares students to be good leaders, good community members and good citizens.
