The purpose of the Community Service program at Seabury Hall is to:
- Promote selfless giving among Seabury Hall students
- Instill in Seabury students a sense of interdependence with the greater community
- Fill needs identified in the community
Upper School students are required to complete 20 hours of service in community agencies or programs and to write a reflection paper about their experiences in order to graduate. Students are encouraged to find their own service opportunities, but a list of sites is also available below. For more information on the community service program and student requirements, please see Rev. Sara Shisler Goff or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seabury Hall's Middle School promotes citizenship skills through leadership opportunities and the community service program. Community service is required at all three grade levels. Sixth graders meet their requirements through activities performed in their Advisory and as a whole class. Seventh and eighth graders must perform a minimum of ten hours per year per individual. Beyond the minimum requirement, service is performed at each grade level, by the Middle School as a whole, and as part of the school-wide Winterim program. Class advisors are able to provide support and guidance. Although students are encouraged to take their own initiative, there are many opportunities within our own community.
