Service Learning is one of the four pillars of Shannon Forest Christian School (SFCS), along with Academics, Athletics, and Fine Arts. At SFCS, we long to nurture a desire within our students to serve others around the world in the name of Jesus. We believe that in order to empower our students to impact the world for Jesus Christ, it is necessary to first present them with knowledge about places locally and in the world where God’s Word is shared, and provide them opportunities to get involved. The service learning program is organized into three complementary, age-appropriate programs: CONNECT, BRIDGES, and IMPACT.
Service Hours Requirements
Annual service hours are required for all students in 7th -12th grade. Two (2) school days of service will count toward ten (10) hours of service hour requirements; the remaining difference is the responsibility of the student to complete individually outside of school. Service hours completed during the summer will be applied to the following school year only. All student transcripts will indicate the number of hours earned. Students earning more than 300 cumulative service hours will receive a silver cord to wear at graduation. Failure to complete the required service hours each year will result in a failing grade in their current Bible class.

him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.
