Service Program

In accordance with our mission statement, we seek to develop our students spiritually and to foster a sense of social and moral responsibility.  As part of their faith foundation and education, BGA students are encouraged to serve the Bishop Ahr community as well as their local communities.  Students can volunteer at area soup kitchen, houses of worship, schools, hospitals and nursing homes.

Freshman students are required to complete 50 hours of service for the school year.  Service hours account for 10% of freshman students' religion grade each quarter.  The quarterly breakdown is:

  • 15 hours completed by the end of the first quarter
  • 15 hours completed by the end of the second quarter
  • 10 hours completed by the end of the third quarter
  • 10 hours completed by the end of the fourth quarter

Service opportunities are announced in homeroom announcements, during religion classes, in the Principal's Newsletter and on the school website.

If a student completes their service hours outside of Bishop Ahr, they must complete a Service Timesheet and return it to Mrs. Karen Wilton in Room 215.

If a student brings donations to the school, they must complete a Donation Timesheet and return it to Mrs. Karen Wilton in Room 215.
