At St. James’, students learn that taking care of each other and our environment is an essential, meaningful, and beautiful part of life. The school’s Service Learning program encourages children to develop a lasting consciousness of the needs of people and communities around them and to serve these needs in all the ways that they can.
The Service Learning program at St. James’ creates compassionate citizens who actively seek out ways to serve their community. With varying activities across all grade levels, starting in preschool, each student has the opportunity to explore and experience taking part in resolving social and environmental issues. Through their experience of service learning, our students develop a sense of consideration and caring that illuminates our school-wide commitment to our mission of respecting all of God’s creation. We believe that the resolute devotion to community outreach and service learning, cultivated in childhood, and combined with a deepening acknowledgment of our responsibility to care for each other, will inspire the graduates of St. James’ Episcopal School to serve others all the days of their lives.
