Community Service

Community Service

Our goal for all of our students is to expose them to a variety of volunteer opportunities within the D.C. metropolitan area beyond the walls of St. John’s Episcopal School and Church.  In addition, we provide a variety of opportunities within the school throughout the year. It is our desire that volunteering within our own community is not just to fulfill a requirement but will develop a sense of pride and inclusion.

Students in the lower school grades (preschool – grade four) do not have specific hourly requirements; however, our upper school students (Grades five – eight) use the following guidelines:

Grades 5 through 8 are all expected to fulfill the number of service hours listed below during the school year. This can be a combination of in-school and community hours.

Grade Hours Required
5 6
6 8
7 10
8 12
