At TASIS, community service is an integral part of each student’s education. Not only do our students develop brilliant minds in their academic coursework, but they also nurture brilliant hearts in their service to others. We expect members of our community to be engaged in the world and committed to using their knowledge and talents to make a lifelong impact on it.
In the words of Winston Churchill, “We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give.”
As part of their Upper School education, students in Grades 9-12 participate in the Community Service Program (CSP). Doing so gives students the opportunity to participate in a number of worthwhile community service projects each year. While we encourage students to complete more than the minimum hours for which they are responsible, students must achieve at least the following number of hours: Freshmen (10), Sophomores (10), Juniors (20), Seniors (20). At the conclusion of the service project, students must also submit a reflection essay about their service experience.
If you would like more information or have any questions about the CSP program, please contact Dr. Carolyn Norris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For students enrolled in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) are major aspects of the program that reinforce and extend what students learn in the classroom. The CAS program begins in Year 1 of the Diploma program and continues for at least 18 months. Students choose to participate in a range of CAS experiences and develop their own CAS project in an area that they are passionate about.
If you would like more information or have any questions about the CAS program, please contact Dr. Carolyn Norris at email@example.com.
