The Columbus Academy's mission statement points to the importance of community service in developing responsible citizens. In order to achieve this goal the school has established a service graduation requirement to expose students to volunteer opportunities as a path to extended community service and as a means to introduce students to the needs of others locally and globally.
Based upon the school's mission, standards and community service statement, all students are expected to complete fifty hours of service in order to receive a Columbus Academy diploma. Beginning after the completion of eighth grade upper school students have four years to complete this requirement.
For details about the requirement and its fulfillment, check the FAQs tab at the top of this page.

An act of service reflects generosity of time, resources,
and energy. It is an investment of self
– spirit, body, and mind –
in helping to meet the needs of others.
