Service is a vital component of the educational experience at PC. Each student performs a minimum of 15 hours of service to others each year; most accomplish much more. Additionally, PC parents serve the school by volunteering throughout the year.
There are numerous ways for students to grow through service to others. Beyond school-sponsored events such as the Annual Day of Service in October, which commemorates the founding of Peninsula Catholic, the office of campus ministry provides opportunities for students and families all year.
All service hours must be legibly recorded on the Christian Service Hour form and turned in the last day before Christmas break regardless of which term a student takes Theology. Students who do not complete their service will receive an “Incomplete” for their theology class. The policy regarding an “Incomplete” class will be enforced as outlined in the “Academic Policies” in the Parent/Student Handbook. Each student will write a reflection paper on their service as part of their final exam.
