Service Requirements

You can find our list of pre-approved service agencies HERE.

The first three grade levels carry with them specific requirements for Christian Service. Christian Service is a requirement of Prep’s curriculum and takes precedence over all other co-curricular activities.

Freshmen must participate in a day of service with their homeroom.

Sophomores must complete 15 hours of Christian service through Prep-sponsored activities or at a non-profit agency approved by Mr. John Dougherty, director of Campus Ministry.  More information about this requirement can be found here.

Juniors must complete 60 hours of direct service, which may be done as a participant on a summer immersion trip, or at a non-profit agency approved by Mr. Dougherty. More information about this requirement can be found here.

Seniors must complete 20 hours of direct service at a non-profit agency approved by Mr. Dougherty. Seniors and juniors must complete the same reflection project, which can be found here.

Service Immersion Trips

Each year, Saint Peter’s Prep runs a number of week-long Christian Service summer immersion trips. Students and faculty who participate in these trips speak of engaging and eye-opening experiences. These trips are a chance for Prep students to leave their comfort zones behind for a week and live in solidarity with people who are poor and marginalized.

In Summer 2022, we hope to bring back as many of our immersion programs as possible, after a brief pandemic-inspired hiatus in 2020 and a reduced schedule in 2021. Updates about available programs and registration will be shared later in the fall.
