Faith & Service

Service to the community is an integral element of a Catholic education and a fundamental pillar of Catholic social teaching. Over the past several years, AOSE's Seton Service Program has developed into a rewarding initiative for both Academy students as well as the recipients of their service. 
 
Academy students are able to complete their service hours over the summer or during the school year at a variety of venues. The service experience is reinforced throughout the school year with quarterly assessments assigned through the students' religion classes.
 
Freshmen students begin their studies at the Academy with a day of service at the Community Food Bank in Hillside, NJ. As part of this retreat day, students engage in a discussion of both local and global hunger. Throughout the rest of the year, they will continue to reflect on the experience and build upon it as they continue fulfilling their service.
 
Sophomores are required to complete fifteen hours of service; they may complete these over the summer before 10th grade or during the school year. Their class assignments will pertain to this service.
 
Juniors are required to complete twenty hours of service. They may complete their hours over the summer before 11th grade or during the year. Their class assignments will pertain to this service.
 
Successful completion of service hours is required for graduation.
