Service Opportunities

The community of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School responds to the Christian call to care for those in need and give to others through selfless acts of service. We encourage students, parents, faculty and staff to give of their time, to serve the community and become a united voice of action. Service opportunities are a valued part of our school curriculum and occur throughout the year. Specific service opportunities for families are listed below.

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).

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