Service Learning

Service Learning at National Presbyterian School gives students the opportunity to meaningfully engage with the needs of their community, learn more about themselves, develop empathy, practice leadership skills and recognize their shared responsibility to care for others.

Service learning projects are student-directed, age-appropriate, hands-on, and serve our community in meaningful ways. Outside of classroom-based service learning, NPS holds Family Service Saturdays throughout the year, giving all family members the opportunity to serve together. NPS is a recipient of the Center for Spiritual and Ethical Education award for excellence in service learning.

Our service learning projects are a clear manifestation of the School’s Core Values and our Christian identity, embracing through service the virtue of love in action.
