Community Service is an important element to the student experience at Pine Castle Christian Academy. There are yearly community service events that students have an opportunity to be a part of, as well as other opportunities that present themselves throughout the year
Service learning at PCCA begins in elementary school with classes participating in various school projects, such as Operation Christmas Child. Once a student enters middle and high school, Community service becomes required for graduation credit.
Each year, middle school participates as a group in services needs around the local community. This year they volunteered with “Clean the World,” an organization that provides hygiene supplies to underprivileged citizens.
Students also can start logging their individual community service projects such as serving at church, mission work, etc. This will help them qualify for National Junior Honor Society as well.
High school students are required to serve at least 25 hours of community service each year, for a total of 100 hours (or more) as a graduation requirement. PCCA provides some organized serving events each year, but many of these hours are required to be earned outside of school.
The community service requirement also helps the students qualify for Bright Futures.
During Homecoming Spirit Week, there is a different theme each day for donations and items collected are donated to local organizations. The entire student body participates in this community service opportunity.
