Social Service

Requirements and Procedures

The following conditions must be satisfied for service hours to count toward the graduation requirement:
  • Students are required to engage in projects that provide a distinctly different character and social climate from what they might encounter on the Cathedral Close.
  • The service must be person-to-person service to help foster learning about oneself and others.
  • The service should include work with a constituency that is underserved or at risk.
  • Approval must be obtained before work with an organization formally begins.
  • After a student completes a service project, he must submit the completed Supervisor’s Evaluation Form to the social service director.
  • Beginning with the Class of 2022, Upper School students will be expected to complete at least 20 hours during each calendar year leading up to their senior year.
Failure to satisfy any of these requirements may result in a project not qualifying for the St. Albans social service requirement.
Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
