The Purpose of Service Hours

At St. Michael High School, the Christian Service Program helps students grow as servant-leaders modeled after Jesus Christ. This program is responsible for providing avenues in which the students give back more than 20,000 volunteer hours of service to the community annually.

Serving others is at the very heart of the Christian life, for Jesus came not to be served, but to serve. Jesus teaches us again and again that in encountering and serving people in need we are meeting and loving God. 

Accordingly, the students, faculty, and staff work hard to create a culture of service at St. Michael High School, where Christian service is integrated naturally into everything we do. Students help coordinate service projects through the Student Council, Key Club, Beta Club, Campus Ministry, and many other student organizations.

Faculty and staff encourage Christian service through the visible example of their many volunteer activities in the community, and coaches encourage team service projects to build unity and leadership. Throughout the year, students have countless opportunities for students to serve their school, church and community.
