At St. Mark’s, service learning opportunities abound! Hands-on experiences in each grade level, Kindergarten through 6th grade, intentionally use service activities to engage our students, enhance curriculum, affirm character values, and build relationships in the community, locally and globally. Service learning experiences are appropriate to our students’ ages and developmental abilities, deepening their knowledge and connecting the St. Mark’s community to real-world issues and needs.
For an introduction to how service joined with learning creates deeply relevant, real-world experiences for students, visit the National Youth Leadership Council and read project examples from elementary, middle, and high schools.
