Service and Justice Issues

As a Jesuit high school, Saint Peter’s Prep answers the call to be aware of injustice in the world and live in solidarity with the oppressed and marginalized in our community. Peter Hans Kolvenbach, S.J., the former Jesuit Superior General, once said, “Students, in the course of their formation, must let the gritty reality of this world into their lives, so they can learn to feel it, think about it critically, respond to its suffering and engage it constructively.” Prep expects its students to become men that can do just that.

Prep's comprehensive and diverse Christian Service program aims to spark in its students the desire to use their unique skills and talents to improve the world around them. They are pushed to acknowledge their own personal power in society and use it. Saint Peter’s students must complete a certain number of service hours, depending upon grade level. Each year of service carries with it different goals and themes, aimed at providing students with unique and varied service experiences during their Prep careers.
