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 – fourth grade) do not have specific hourly requirements; however, our upper school students (fifth – eighth grade) use the following guidelines:
Grades 5 through 8 are all expected to fulfill eight hours of service during the school year. This can be a combination of in-school and community hours.
