Community Service is an integral part of the Midwest Academy student experience. It complements our mission in the following ways:
Social Justice: As a progressive school committed to teaching our students about social justice, community service introduces our students to social injustices in our community and empowers them to make a difference for the greater good.
Service Learning: Volunteering empowers our students to see their unique gifts are capable of making a difference in the community and the world. Students learn, perhaps for the first time, how their talents can positively change the lives of others.
Community service is an ongoing effort throughout the school year, with high school mentor groups volunteering at least once per semester. Additionally, the entire student body performs community service on Patriot Day (September 11) and during our Community Week (President’s Day week in February) annually.
Regular community partners include the following organizations:
