As a part of their faith foundation and education, Bishop Eustace Preparatory School requires students to participate in direct service to others. This service commitment is to be fulfilled by the student during each of their four years.
Freshmen are asked to serve others within the Bishop Eustace community. This includes teachers and administrative, secretarial and maintenance staff. A project(s) totaling at least two hours in length is to be completed each academic quarter.
Sophomores are asked to serve with their faith community. A project(s) totaling at least four hours in length is to be completed each academic quarter.
Juniors are required to make a commitment to serve those in extraordinary need through works of social action. They are to work as groups. A project(s) totaling at least six hours in length is to be completed each academic quarter.
Seniors are required to make a weekly commitment to serve those in extraordinary need. At Bishop Eustace we interpret this to mean “the direct provision of a basic human good to people in extraordinary need.” Basic human goods include food, shelter, education, and care and companionship to the elderly, confined, mentally or physically challenged, sick and dying. Seniors are to serve once a week for the duration of the academic year, from September through early May.
