Commitment To Service

Faith without works is dead.   James 2:20

Covington Latin School's commitment to service dates back to the School's founding in 1923 and is reflected in the School Mission.  Humanitarian service is a fundamental facet of the CLS experience, but, moreover, is the spiritual model of leadership our students strive to follow, embodied by Jesus Christ-leadership through serving others.

Service develops an innate compassion and broader understanding of the human condition while also serving as an acknowledgement to our students of their many blessings.  Implementing positive change through active volunteerism is instrumental in providing the type of transformative experience that is the hallmark of a CLS education. 

Students will have completed a minimum of 80 service hours upon graduation, with many going above and beyond the requirements each year.  Each service experience must be accompanied by a service verification form within two weeks of service completion.  A wide array of service opportunities are available to CLS students, underscoring the diversity of community needs.

New service opportunities are welcomed but must be shared with and approved in advance by Mr. Iadipaolo for consideration of service hour credit.
