Community Service Requirement
Central Christian High School students are required to perform a minimum of 25 hours of community service each school year as part of their Bible classes. If a student does not accumulate these hours, their Bible grade will be dropped by 10% (one letter grade). High School students must submit a minimum of 10 hours by the end of first semester and the remainder by the end of second semester. It is required that students divide their service equally between their church, community, and CCS. A student may begin accumulating the required hours during the summer vacation days prior to the start of each school year.
Community Service Defined: Any volunteer service activity that a student performs for an individual or an organization for which he/she is not compensated. There are four basic guidelines that must be followed:
- There must not be a direct benefit to the student (pay, favors, trade).
- The individual served may not be a direct relative. (Mother, Father, Aunt, Uncle, Grandparents)
- The organization served cannot be owned by the student’s family member(s).
- Only the hours they are actually working and/or serving should be counted. (e.g., youth camp counselor would only count the time spent actually working for the campers—not “hang out” time, sleep time, or meal time.)
