In an effort to keep tuition low, Our Lady of Mount Carmel School requires each registered family to complete a minimum of 30 service hours per school year (a total of 20 hours if you are a single parent or have a deployed spouse; a total of 40 hours if you receive financial aid). There are some slight changes to the service hour requirements for this year. In the past, families were required to complete 20 hours of volunteer service plus 2 Bingo shifts for a total of 30 hours. The 30 hour requirement has not changed; however, you are welcome to choose how you will complete these 30 hours using the table below.

All families are required to track their own hours and record them in Ren Web. Each quarter a letter will be sent home in your child’s report card stating the number of hours completed and the number of hours remaining. Attendance for class programs, school functions, or sporting events are not included for service hours unless otherwise specified. Service hours end May 15th of each school year. There will be a $15.00 charge per hour added to the family tuition account for any uncompleted hours.

A minimum of 10 Hours must be chosen from the list below. However, all 30 hours may be used in one or more of these categories: Any remaining hours can be chosen from the following categories:
