Roanoke Catholic believes that service to school and community is an integral part of a Christian education; all students are involved in service projects. Beginning in kindergarten, each class partners in service to a particular local agency or organization, such as the Ronald McDonald House, St. Francis of Assisi Service Dogs, TAP, and the Southwest Virginia Food Bank.
Upper School Service
All students are required to perform 40 hours of community service each year. Students are to develop personal service projects, perform acts of service, and submit verification forms in a timely manner. Information on service opportunities both within the school and the broader community will regularly be made available. The number of verified service hours performed will be noted on each quarterly student report. If students have not completed the required service, or if they have not submitted verification, their report cards and/or transcripts will be withheld until their service hours have been completed.
Middle School Service
Middle School Students participate in the Saint House program. Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Grade students do good deeds for points. Community service hours that benefit the community, neighborhood, church or school in a non-paid volunteer capacity can be presented to their teachers for credit.
