  • Community Service is Crucial to Our Mission

    Doing, Giving, and Serving
Our students are enlightened, compassionate, and contributing members of our community. The Middle School service-learning program teaches students civic responsibility and the value of public service and building relationships within their own community.
Over the course of the year, students learn about issues that affect the Greater Toledo community, such as homelessness, poverty, literacy, and health. Equipped with this knowledge students devote themselves to researching local issues on which they are passionate, designing materials to educate others about the cause, and acting on their civic responsibilities through service.

As a result of these community relationships, students simultaneously lend a helping hand while bonding with one another. Students also have the chance to get to know one another outside of the formal classroom and have the capacity to create new memories as they support one another and their community.
A full range of service opportunities exists within the Toledo area. The Middle School has created lasting relationships with several organizations and returns every year with new students. Many students continue to work with these organizations beyond Middle School.
