Community Service Projects

Each year students in grades 9 – 12 adopt a local ministry as their “class ministry.” Classes work with that community ministry for an entire year and then move to another ministry the next year in order to broaden horizons and build relationships. Current community organizations include Doe River Gorge, Coalition for Kids, Rise Up, Small Miracles, Pathfinders, and Camp ACC.

Elementary students combine service projects with raise awareness and items for local charities such as blankets for area homeless shelters, supplies for Inter Faith Hospitality Network, diapers for Crisis Pregnancy Centers, and shoes for children in Central America.

In October we have a school-wide food drive, partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank. Each elementary class is teamed with a secondary class to see who can collect the most food for the most points. Each item is given a point value. The team with the most total points wins! Three years, PA has won Division C (small schools) with most food collected in competition with other local schools.
