JH/SH Service Hours

Beginning the 2020-2021 school year, service hours will be collected by our guidance department as part of the high school graduation requirement at CCS. In addition, CCS will be asking our high school students to complete a total of 20 hours of service each school year starting with the graduating class of 2024.

About Service Hours

  • Service is expected to be volunteered to a person or organization that is not part of their immediate family.
  • High school students can use five of these 20 hours to be counted from a student’s time in church engaged in worship with their local congregation, documented by notes from the sermon.
  • Junior high students at CCS will be required to complete 12 hours of volunteer service each school year they attend CCS. Three of these 12 hours may be counted from a student’s time in church engaged in worship with their local congregation and documented by sermon notes.

Documenting Service Hours

For each volunteer service opportunity and/or any notes from church sermons, students will complete the Service Hours Form and submit it to the guidance department. Volunteer hours will need to be signed by the person (not a family member) who supervised their service time. Sermon notes from time engaged in the local church may be signed by a parent. Forms can be submitted to servicehours@cincinnatichristian.org.
