Service Requirements for Holly Grove Christian School

Service is an important part of the educational process at Holly Grove Christian School. As Christians we need to practice the Biblical principle of serving others. Our goal is for HGCS students to have an opportunity to be of service to the community.
Each high school student, as approved by the school board policy, will be required to perform 20 hours per year of unpaid service to a pre-approved school, church, or community organization. The total amount of hours of service required for four years of high school at HGCS is 80 hours. All projects must be submitted to the principal for prior approval and can be started after completion of seventh grade. Examples of acceptable projects include: church work, school or community service project, volunteer service at a hospital or nursing home, helping the needy, mission trips or projects, etc. A documentation form will be provided to the student when the project is approved. Since this is a graduation requirement, diplomas will be withheld until service hours are completed. Students may volunteer for more than 20 hours of service per year. Any additional hours per year will be counted toward the total of 80 hours.
