Community Service is a portion of the educational process that addresses the moral and spiritual development of our students. By serving those outside our regular circle, we develop an appreciation of our many blessings. It is our goal here at Saint John’s, to have our students recognize that they have the power to affect another life by caring enough to serve others.
Graduation from Saint John’s Catholic Prep requires 80 hours of community service from each student, with at least 20 hours each year. Hours completed during the summer after 8th grade may be used. There are many opportunities in our community for service.
Please contact Mrs. Ryczko, the Director of Community Service, for more information on volunteer organizations or select one of the following websites for an online listing - Volunteer Match, Volunteer Maryland, and Montgomery County Volunteer Center.

Students document their hours using the online platform MobileServe. They can submit a photo of our signed community service form, have the supervisor sign the app on their phone, or have the supervisor respond to an email sent from MobileServe when the student logs the hours.
