Holy Cross Academy requires community service as a part of the curriculum. Holy Cross believes it is important that students see their faith as a lived experience and see service as an integral part of their Christian lifestyle.
Service Hour Requirements:
Freshmen 10 hours
Sophomores 15 hours
Juniors 20 hours
Seniors 25 hours
Doing more than the required hours in a given year does not decrease the hours due in succeeding years.
Students must obtain written verification of service given on the letterhead of the organization stating the type of service and the number of hours served.
Students should keep a copy of all service hours earned for their own records.
Students may not receive compensation for their community service.
Hours may be served either in our school community or in the local community of the student.
*The types of service must comply with the acceptable service topics. Students should see the Service Coordination, if they have any questions.
Parents choose Holy Cross Academy to provide an academic setting based on Catholic tradition and teachings. An integral part of a student’s religious education is an annual retreat that provides students time to reflect on their own spirituality and life’s many gifts and blessings. Therefore, along with four years of religious studies and service commitments, students are required to attend the annual retreat.
