Service

Christian Service

The goal of the Seton Catholic Preparatory service program is for students to recognize and demonstrate that serving others is central to our call as Catholic Christians. This Gospel-rooted service is essential to every student’s experience at Seton Catholic. The service requirements are different for each grade level and are detailed below. Parents are encouraged to check updated information, available year-round on Canvas.

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. All Christian service requirements must be fulfilled in order for a student to move onto the next grade and to participate in any graduation events and receive their diploma.

Service Contract

 

For service to count towards the Christian Service grade, it must first be approved. Appropriate service includes that performed at non-profits with 501(c)(3) status, a place of worship, schools, coaching youth, and other like opportunities.

Students must use this form to request their service be approved for the 2019-2020 school year.

PASS (Prayer and Service at Seton)

Prayer and Service at Seton (PASS) is our commitment to fulfill our mission to engage in loving service towards others with the school community.  Students in their Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior year will join together with the other members of their House on a specified day during the school year to serve. Prior to departing, students 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 vulnerable population they will be serving, and upon return, will be given time to reflect on their day together.
