La Salle College Preparatory seeks to create life-long servers, therefore service is infused into the life of the school. Over the course of 4 years, a graduating senior will have participated in over 75 hours of Christian service working side by side with fellow students, faculty, and staff of the school. Service and service-learning is part of the curriculum in many subject areas, including the arts, English, Religious Studies, Science and Social Studies. Service culminates with the senior Christian Life and Service class as students volunteer at a local agency approximately once a week during their Religious Studies class for the entire school year. Student Life enhances the service program by providing school-wide service opportunities such as our traditional Catholic Schools’ Week of service, annual Adopt-a-family Christmas party, Riley’s Race 4 Change and others. Student Life also provides opportunities for students and staff to volunteer for ongoing service projects such as cooking at Union Station, donating blood, participating in 60 seconds of service, and more. Every club at school participates in a service project once a semester. Through the help of our service coordinator, many of our athletic teams work on a service project. Students also have the opportunity to participate in our growing service immersion program. Aside from creating lifelong servers, we seek to share our time, talent, and treasure with people who need our help.
La Salle’s Christian service program is very unique compared to most other Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, as students at La Salle are not required to complete a minimum number of service hours to graduate.
