Service Learning @ SHP (Grades 9-12)
At the high school level, analysis of the root causes of suffering and injustice is coupled with individual activity and contribution. Through service performed on campus, for local organizations, and service-immersion programs, students apply their passions to enact meaningful, positive change. Proximity and solidarity with people who are poor or marginalized is emphasized in annual service projects. The goal is to bring students from performing charity to actively seeking justice. Additionally, some disciplines, electives, and upper-division courses require experiential service activities as part of the standard curriculum. Senior independent studies in community service or social justice also help bring students to a higher level engagement with social justice.
