SCA has a goal of ensuring that all students are well prepared for the PSAT and SAT, and upon graduation have a transcript that is suitable for application and acceptance to the college or university of their choice.
High School Service Hours
In order to graduate, each student must have 50 service hours. These hours start in the freshman year of High School. The students are allowed to start their service hour registry and continue with it through May 15th of their senior year. If your child is a Junior or Senior in the 2010 - 2012 years, their requirement is 30 hours. The additional hours were added last year.
Service Hours are to aid in the student becoming aware of the opportunities around him/her, to assist those in need or spend time with an organization helping others. There are many, many opportunities for the students to be involved in. To list a few ; Carolina Pregnancy Center, Soup Kitchen, Meals on Wheels, Homeless Shelter, Shepherd’s Door, Mission Trip, shut-ins, working in the concession stand at SCA activities, Special Olympics, Upward, etc. The student has to be in contact with the supervisor, teacher, minister, (person in charge), and that person will fill out a document stating : the student, the job, the time involved, and a brief note of the student’s work ethic.
You may print a copy of the document from the web-site, or the student may get one from Mrs. Deborah Blanton. It is best to turn in these documents as the service is completed and not wait until the Junior or Senior year. These are also turned in to Mrs. Blanton.
