All Valley Oaks students are required to complete 5 hours of community service each semester. We believe in the substantial research showing that students can greatly benefit from doing meaningful service work. These benefits include the development of emotional intelligence, happiness and mental health, relationship building, self-confidence, civic understanding, and self-identity. Students need to sign an Agreement Contract each year and fill out a Verification Form for their 5 hours each semester.
We also offer an elective course for students who do 2 or more hours of service each week all semester for a non-profit organization. Students may earn up to 10 elective credits every semester (150hrs) in The Community Service Course. Students need to contact Ms. Parker if interested in enrolling in this course.
