Students must earn forty (40) hours of Community Service as one of their graduation requirements.  Students may begin to earn these hours once they complete their eight (8th) grade year.  The hours may be earned all at one time, or in any manner that meets the student’s schedule, during his/her high school years, but must be completed prior to the student’s participation in a commencement ceremony and the granting of a diploma.
