King Cares Service Program

The Mission of the King Cares Service Program is to support the values-based education at King School. This Program reinforces the school’s belief that service to the broader community, both local and international, is central to educational excellence.

The King Cares Service Program combines service learning, a curriculum-based teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful service with instruction and reflection, with co-curricular community service. It enriches the learning experience by promoting civic responsibility and strengthening our community through a reciprocal learning partnership among students, families, Faculty, staff, the surrounding community, and the world. The Program focuses on developing existing relationships between King School and the world and champions the development of each individual by offering students the opportunity to help others through service. Our commitment to service affirms the belief that all students can learn and become responsible, productive citizens, locally and globally.
