Queen Anne’s County Public Schools promotes high-quality Service-Learning experiences for all students to help them become active participants in making a difference in their community on a local and global level. Service-Learning is a teaching method that combines meaningful service to the community with curriculum-based learning. Students improve their academic skills by applying what they learn in school to the real world; they then reflect on their experience to reinforce the link between their service and their learning. Successfully completing service-learning is a Maryland State Department of Education graduation requirement. Students must complete a total of 75 hours of service to the community prior to graduation.
In Queen Anne's County Public Schools, service-learning opportunities begin as early as in elementary school. During 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, students work to complete a minimum of one service-learning project each year within at least one of their content classes designed to provide service that is beneficial to their local community.
In high school, students complete at least two more projects, in addition to the three service-learning experiences completed in middle school. By the time students graduate, they will have completed at least five service-learning projects that incorporate academic preparation and structured reflection. For more information about the high-quality service-learning in Queen Anne's County Public Schools, contact your local school's Service-Learning Coordinator.
