Community service is an integral part of life at the Academy of the Holy Names. It provides practical ways to live the Gospel Message in today’s world. The entire school community is involved in ongoing educational projects and in actual community service opportunities in the Tampa Bay community. The Office of Campus Ministry oversees this aspect of AHN life.
Campus Ministry works with the administration and the guidance and religious education departments of both school divisions to provide programs for education, enrichment and motivation. As with the mission and charism of the Sisters of the Holy Names, there is emphasis on social justice issues locally, nationally and worldwide. The Academy holds two Community Service Days annually: one day for the Elementary School and one day for the High School.
High School Requirements
The high school division’s community service requirements are overseen by the Office of Campus Ministry. Students are required to serve 25 hours of service per year, for a cumulative total of 100 hours. Oftentimes, students graduate with many more than the 100 required hours.
- Freshmen: 25 hours
- Sophomores: 50 hours (total)
- Juniors: 75 hours (total)
- Seniors: 100 hours (total)
