Our students go above and beyond to care for their environment and help others in the community and around the world. Leadership and good citizens become second nature to our young men and women.
All students are required to complete a minimum of 80 hours of community service to graduate, but most complete far more than that.
There are various community service opportunities throughout the year in the areas of marine science and conservation, local city beautification, participation with local organizations that support students with disabilities, and more.
Recent ways our students served the community:
