Service

Christian Service

The goal of the Christian service program at Seton Catholic Preparatory is for students to recognize and demonstrate that by serving others, we answer our call to be Catholic Christians. Gospel-rooted service is essential to every student’s experience at SCP. For each grade level the Christian service requirements are different and detailed in the Service Contract and Service Requirements forms. Students receive these forms at the beginning of each school-year. Both parents and students sign the Christian Service Contract thus indicating their agreement to the parameters of the project and the deadlines.

Graduation Requirement

Students at all grade levels are held accountable for performing Gospel-rooted Christian service by a pass/fail grade that determines their eligibility status. Missing a deadline will result in ineligibility until the requirement is fulfilled. All Christian service requirements must be fulfilled in order for a student to participate in any graduation events and receive their diploma.

Freshman Service

A minimum of 15 service hours must be completed. This project includes 1 Seton Catholic Prep liturgical service, 4 hours of service with their house, 5 hours within a personal project, and the PASS day of service. During their first year at Seton, every student participates in a Prayer and Service at Seton (PASS) Day of Service. Your student will join together with the other Freshmen in their House on a specified day during the school year. On that day, they will travel by bus to serve at one of the following local nonprofit organizations: St. Vincent de Paul, Paz de Cristo, or UMOM. Prior to departing, your student will engage in prayer as they seek to discover God's purpose for them during their acts of service that day. The students will learn about the non-profit's issue of concern and upon return, will be given time to reflect on their day.
