Campus Ministry/Service Opportunities
As an expression of our Core Values, students are encouraged to develop spiritually and morally in the tradition of the Felician Sisters. Each of our classes participates in class retreats each year. Although OLSH does not require service hours, our students logged over 10,000 service hours last school year. Students give back to OLSH by helping out at open houses, fundraisers like the turkey bingo, and the pasta feast, and other school events. Students support the community by volunteering at the Mooncrest after-school program, Habitat for Humanity, parish festivals, and vacation Bible school programs. Many OLSH students also participate in mission trips with parish youth groups. If you would like more information on Campus Ministry, please contact our Campus Minister, Mrs. Erin Stuvek.
Students are placed into specific course levels at the discretion of each academic department chair. These decisions are based on previous grades, motivation, departmental prerequisites and performance on the placement exam.
