Community Service


Community Service: Service Learning Program

The goal of the service learning program is to connect students to Helen Y. Davis Leadership Academy's (the Academy) core values of leadership, personal excellence, respect, intellectual curiosity, integrity, compassion, and community citizenship through meaningful and concrete experiences at the Academy and through partnerships with community organizations. Students complete at least three service learning projects as a class, rather than individually. In the past, grade level service learning projects were as follows:
