Service Learning

St. Patrick Catholic School is committed to service-learning for all grade levels.


Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen the communities.


Service-learning supports our mission to give students meaningful opportunities for service that not only engages the heart but also the mind. Each grade level learns about a social justice issue and then supports an organization related to the issue throughout the year.

Service-learning organizations and social justice issues covered include:
