CAL COAST CARES:
Cal Coast Academy’s community service program, Cal Coast Cares (C3), allows students to experience in a dynamic way by actively participating in a variety of local service opportunities.
The main goal of our community service requirement is to provide our student body with the realization of what it means to serve and to grow emotionally from this service. Cal Coast Cares offers a number of community service projects throughout each academic school year which students are encouraged to participate in. A service-learning component is incorporated into each of our C3 service projects so students come to understand and appreciate the “What” and the “Why” of community service.
Community service hours are to be completed after school hours, on weekends, or during summer and/or vacation periods. All community service hours completed outside of those offered by C3 must be documented by a Reflection Form, and submitted within three months of completion.
Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students are required to complete ten qualifying community service hours each year. Freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior students are required to complete twenty-five qualifying community service hours each year. Service hours are carried forward from year to year.
COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENTS:
6th Grade : 10 hours Freshman : 25 hours Seniors : 25 hours
7th Grade : 10 hours Sophomores : 25 hours
8th Grade : 10 hours Juniors : 25 hours
Transferring students must meet with our C3 Director to determine if community service hours from another school will be accepted. In some circumstances, an equitable adjustment of the required number of hours for graduation commensurate with the time actually spent as a student at Cal Coast Academy will be made.
COMMUNITY SERVICE TIMELINE:
Students must submit their annual qualifying community service hours no later than June 1, 2014 in order to comply with Cal Coast Academy's requirements.
