What is Service Learning?
Service learning is when meaningful service is integrated into the curriculum. Students learn to assess needs and reflect on their work in real world situations.
How does Entheos Make a Change?
Entheos Academy crews serve the community while learning through standards-based expeditions, and sixth-grade students become leaders by participating in the Year of Service.
Other school programs such as Discovery, ninth-grade Honors Language arts, fifth-grade service crews and school-wide service days offer students additional opportunities to participate in service, reflection, community involvement and expand expeditions.
After school service clubs and family service nights reinforce the Entheos commitment to do our part in the community and change the world one student at a time.
The Six Steps to Service Learning
- Conduct a needs assessment
- Make a plan
- Engage in meaningful service that impacts the community
- Student involvement, input, and responsibility throughout the process
- Integrate curriculum with service
We Are Crew, Not Passengers
Students are actively involved in planning, carrying out, and reflecting on successes and curriculum based service.
We are Community
Entheos comes together as a school community by doing service for, and in, the community. This happens by participating in school-wide service days, weekly after school service clubs, community family service nights and community partnerships.
6th Graders Changing the World
Sixth graders become leaders by researching and choosing a social issue and organization where they can make a difference. They plan how to provide 30 hours of meaningful service outside of school hours. Reflection through activities and writing, along with creating logos, graphs, and a media presentation, integrate learning throughout the process.
9th Graders Stepping Up
Ninth graders have the opportunity to participate in a forty-hour service project similar to the 6th grade Year of Service.
