Service Learning is an essential component of the SMA religion program. It is considered a Cumulative Common Assessment (CCA) which is worth 10% of the final grade for grades 7 and 8 and 15% of the final grade for grades 9-12. In order for students to be eligible for awards in grade 12 they must have completed their service learning each year.
Service Learning 2022-2023
Service Learning is an integral part of a St. Mary’s Academy education. In taking part in Service Learning students actively respond to needs in the community, church or school and they reflect on the experience. Service Learning does not receive any monetary rewards or remuneration. We are offering an assortment of options in a Bingo-style format. Students are required to complete a minimum of one activity from each column between July 1, 2022 and February 1, 2023. *Grades 11 and 12 students have the option of doing 'indirect' or 'direct' service, details are outlined below.
