Community Service

Students in the Classes of 2015 and beyond are required to complete an average of 10 hours of Community Service a year, for each of their four years of high school, for a total of 40 hours.

What counts as community service?

The following illustrate examples of community service which meet this requirement:

  • Volunteer work for a service organization (Rotary, Kiwanis, Soroptimists, etc.)
  • Volunteer work for a non-profit organization such as the Fallbrook Food Bank, Angel Society, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, etc.
  • Volunteer work for churches

All community service must be pre-approved by the principal / designee in order to fulfill this graduation requirement.
