Community Service is an important part of each student’s Good Counsel experience. In addition to completing a required number of service hours each year, students contribute zealously and compassionately to our school community, local communities, and world community through many activities sponsored by classes, clubs, teams, and the Campus Ministry Office.

Seniors are required to complete 40 hours of service at a non-profit that helps the poor and marginalized with at least 5 hours in direct service of the poor and marginalized.
They are also required to complete a day of service at S.O.M.E with religion class (does not count towards requirement). Any student not attending the scheduled day must go on his/her own to serve breakfast and lunch, unless he/she is sick. Failure to complete S.O.M.E requirement will result in a failure for service.
Seniors who do not receive a passing service grade will not receive their diplomas and their transcripts will be withheld from colleges until they have completed all service requirements. The grade will remain a failure even after the completion of the requirements in the summer months, but a pass will be placed on the transcript to denote completion after the fact.
Please check MyBackPack for updated service hours.
