Lightning service

Lightridge High School encourages students to actively engage in volunteer service throughout high school. Students who demonstrate a strong commitment to service, as evidenced by completing 100 or more hours of service by April of their senior year, will earn a service cord to be worn at graduation. Loudoun County Public Schools does not require volunteer service hours for graduation.

In order to qualify for a service cord, students must submit their volunteer hours each year during the eligibility period for each school year. The Lightridge Volunteer Service Form can be completed as many times as needed throughout the academic year to document multiple volunteer activities and service hours. Students may only count volunteer service hours from the summer before 9th grade through April of senior year. Each student is responsible for logging and maintaining a record of their hours. Happy volunteering!

Service hours submitted during 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 through the JCHS portal have been transferred over to Lightridge.

If you have questions about your service hours, please contact Mr. Black at
