Day of Service

This video was produced by Dara Syed ’19 and Ethan Tilley ’19 and highlights the cleanup the juniors performed at the Woburn Conservation Commission Community Gardens.


At Austin Prep, we live our mission through our annual Day of Service. As a community, we devote an entire school day to focusing on Caritas, one of our charisms. Through firsthand experience and volunteering, students build partnerships within our community and the larger surrounding communities. Some previous organizations that we've worked with in the past include:

  • My Brother's Table
  • Reading and Wakefield Food Pantries
  • Local Community Beaches and Parks
  • Therapy Farms, and 
  • Nursing Homes

Community Service

Service work gives students the opportunity to reach out to others who truly need what they have to offer: their time and their talents. Students can experience and share God’s love in concrete ways through their words and their actions in ministry to others. They can make a real difference in the lives of others. The service experience can also lead to self-discovery and self-growth. Hopefully, students will come to realize through this process that they receive far more than they could ever give, for service to our neighbors is service to God.

All students are required to perform community service every year, and community service hours are a graduation requirement for seniors. Requirements are posted at the beginning of each academic year for all students and must be completed by the deadlines assigned.

Students work with the Chaplain on selecting places and projects that fulfill the goal of service to others.
