Instilling the lifelong value of service has long been a hallmark of a AG体育APP education. 学生 in grades PK-12 engage in service projects throughout the year that reach beyond our campuses to the greater Pittsburgh region and around the world.

中学生每年都参加全球行动日, a comprehensive day of service learning for the entire school that includes educational sessions with local nonprofits and hands-on service projects. 每年全球行动日都有不同的主题, and each grade focuses on a different service effort related to that theme. 学生 meet in advisory groups to brainstorm service projects that they can carry out during the rest of the school year to continue supporting their cause. 除了, students can join the Community 服务 Committee to plan and lead various service projects in the community.
