Service is an important part of a student's life here at Aurora Christian. We seek to fulfill our mission statement by encouraging and promoting service to our school body, community, and beyond.
As a means of fulfilling the school's mission of preparing students for a life of service to Christ and their world, each high school student must complete 8 hours of Christian service per quarter, and each middle school student must complete 4 hours of Christian service per quarter. This service must be performed during the current quarter for non-family members, verified by parents, and submitted for a percentage of the Bible grade.
ACS is committed to serving others, so much so that every May we dedicate a full-school day to going out into our community to serve. Students, teachers, staff, and volunteers from kindergarten to the senior class come together forming a 600 plus member workforce for a unique day of service. Over 30 non-profit organizations, i.e. churches, nursing homes, food pantries, homeless shelters, etc., benefit from a work-related visit by one of the 10-50 member ACS City-Serve teams.
"Mission Impossible is a way to reach out to people in need and have fun doing it!"
- Taylor Pape, class of 2010
Each spring during Spring Break, approximately 100-150 High School students from Aurora Christian High School venture out into our community and serve through a construction service project. This school-wide missions trip is something that our students, teachers, parents, and administrators look forward to each spring.
