Community Service

Uni does NOT require community service hours for graduation. However, we believe community service to be a valuable and rich experience for high school students. We suggest students keep track of their service on their own log and keep it for reference when it comes time for college applications. We are required to allow students who complete 25 community service hours to submit a Community Service Log (fillable pdf). However, this is not necessary for the student's record.
