CBC’s Vision Statement reads: “Christian Brothers College High School will create positive change in our community and world through the lives of our graduates: young men who are guided by faith, strengthened by intellect, committed to justice, and prepared to lead and serve.” In light of this, the administration of CBC has granted all juniors a privileged time in May to demonstrate their faith and commitment to justice through servant leadership by releasing them from academic work three weeks prior to the conclusion of the school year. Please note, this does NOT mean that summer vacation simply starts three weeks earlier for juniors. Rather, it is the expectation of the administration that all juniors complete their junior year experience in direct service of others during this three week period so that they will grow in their awareness of the needs of those they serve, and, hopefully, become more committed to the service of others as they become "Men for Tomorrow". This service experience is “kicked-off” with a prayer service on the first Friday of May to commission the junior class for service. This prayer service is designed to promote the ideal of leadership that we envision for seniors at CBC - to be Servant Leaders. The experience concludes with a mandatory Service Reflection Retreat on the last Thursday in May
For more detailed information regarding the Junior Service Program, please review all documents included below. Please note that: 1) the contract is due on the first of December each year; 2) the service must be through an approved agency; and 3) the service rendered must be in direct service of people in situations of poverty (economic, social, physical, or mental). This service can be completed locally or through a CBC sponsored mission trip.
