Middle School Community Service

“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”
- Saint Augustine
At Austin Prep, we are dedicated to the formation of the whole child: enlightening the mind, but never at the expense of engaging the heart. Through the Austin Prep Service Program, students experience and share God’s love in concrete ways through their time, talents, words, and actions in ministry to others. Throughout the Austin Journey, in pursuit of Christ and in the service of those who are less fortunate in our communities, Austin Prep students come to realize that they receive far more than they could ever give. Service is an excellent opportunity to encounter people in love and charity, and as a result, learn more about oneself and God along the way. 

The Austin Service Program requirements for Middle School students are as follows:

  • Grade 6 students must complete 2 hours of service during that school year. 

  • Grade 7 students must complete 3 hours of service during that school year.

  • Grade 8 students must complete 4 hours of service during that school year. 

These service experiences are discussed as part of the Advisory Program.

All Middle School service sites must be pre-approved by February 1. Students will receive email notification about their approval status within a week of submitting their form. Service must be completed and verification must be submitted by April 1. Pre-approval and the service verification process can be completed through this form.
