Community Service

The goal of community service is to teach students the values and satisfaction of being contributing members of society.

Community service builds character, self-confidence, a sense of place in relation to the rest of our society and is a key part of SKS education.

Community service expands your learning outside the classroom. Providing service to others helps you develop passions that may play a part in your college and career choice.

Become an ambassador for SKS by following the principles of truth, respect, and responsibility.


Twenty (20) service hours per year must be accrued outside of the normal school day, during the school year, in school scheduled or approved projects/events. Most events/projects take place on weekends. Length of events vary; most projects require 2-5 hours of work, some overnight or for a weekend. Week long events are available.
