Social Service at St. Albans School
St. Albans School is dedicated to preparing young men for the intellectual, ethical, and emotional challenges of life. In keeping with this ideal, we believe it is essential that our students learn they have a responsibility to give of themselves for the benefit of others.
The Upper School Social Service Program has a 60-hour social service requirement that students must complete prior to their senior year. Projects must conform to the procedures set by the Social Service Department. A list of approved social service agencies in the Washington area is maintained by the department. Appropriate service at any of these agencies will satisfy the graduation requirement.
The Lower School has no service requirement, although students do conduct seasonal toy, food, and clothing drives; contribute to causes identified in chapel or by individual classes; and interact face-to-face with individuals or groups that the students might not ordinarily have an opportunity to spend time with, including the elderly, the poor, and the homeless.
The St. Albans Social Service Department is a member of the Washington Independent School’s Community Outreach Board.
