All freshman and sophomore students are enrolled in one religion class per semester. Freshmen and sophomores are required to do a minimum of 16 hours of Christian Service each year, completing at least 8 of those hours in the first academic semester.
Failure to complete these hours will result in a grade of “F” in religion for the semester within which the student failed to complete his hours. Students are permitted to perform these hours in the summer prior to the academic year (provided that the previous academic year and all corresponding requirements have been completed.) Service hours cannot be performed for a student’s parent/guardian performing regular household tasks (i.e. babysitting younger siblings, cleaning the house, etc.). Hours may be performed with a parent/guardian if it is for a larger charitable organization/event. Service hours cannot be performed with a for-profit business/organization unless it is in connection with a larger charitable organization/event.
