Service learning serves as the intersect between our academic excellence and values-based character education pillars—bringing content, concepts, and skills gleaned from both to life through hands-on, tangible experiences. While immersed in service-learning projects, students will experience the fulfillment of giving back to their communities and helping others. This program is a HUGE part of Compass life and sets us apart from other educational options.
We have developed partnerships with nonprofit agencies that are focused on social services and Each care for the environment. We want to empower our students to be able to recognize needs in our communities, identify ways they can be of service and become engaged as change agents. Our students will spend the school year learning about their partnering nonprofit, developing a relationship with that nonprofit through quarterly touchpoints and ultimately completing an intensive service-learning project to benefit their nonprofit. The purpose of this program is to promote collaborative initiatives for the extension of services and for the building up of a healthy community. In doing so, we are supporting our students to become agents of change in their communities.
