Service Learning is an essential component of the SMA religion program. It is considered a Cumulative Common Assessment (CCA) which is worth 10% of the final grade for grades 7 and 8 and 15% of the final grade for grades 9-12. In order for students to be eligible for awards in grade 12 they must have completed their service learning each year.

Service Learning is an integral part of a St. Mary’s Academy education.
