Student Life & Service Learning

Our high school students are required to engage in meaningful volunteerism during the school year. All high school students are individually required to serve a minimum of 20 hours per school year as a volunteer either within the greater community or at the Twin Cities Academy campus.

Students are responsible to arrange their own volunteer opportunities. Volunteer hours must be pre-approved and documented with the school counselor. As a graduation requirement, all students are required to accumulate 80 hours of volunteer time by the time they graduate. In addition to this hourly requirement, all high school students participate in a service-learning project throughout the year in their advisories. The culminating event in the spring is a Service-Learning Symposium, where the students present their projects to their peers and staff.
