Work Grant

What Parents Should Know About The Work Grant Program

All students receiving tuition assistance have a required minimum 20-hour service obligation. To further our emphasis on servant-leadership, they will work alongside students from various campus clubs and organizations to provide needed assistance at school-sponsored events. It is important that your student plans ahead, checking his Work Grant status and the listing of opportunities on a regular basis. 

In addition to the 20-hour work requirement, each student in the program is required to help in some way with the annual Golden Bell Auction. The Golden Bell is our primary fundraising event for the financial aid program, so all work grant students are asked to provide assistance, alongside nearly 100 other parent, student, faculty and staff volunteers, in the preparation, production or hosting of the event. This year's auction will be held on March 10, 2018. The schedule of opportunities will be posted three weeks prior to the event and will include auction prep on March 8, set up on March 9, day of activities on March 10 and clean up on March 11.

Your student should check the work grant calendar in x2VOL for an overview of upcoming work opportunities. This is intended to be a fluid schedule for planning purposes, and there will be ongoing additions and deletions. 

Work grant students with questions/difficulties regarding the program should contact Ms. Laurel Galli.
Important Notes:
  • Work grant hours must be completed before April 30, 2018.
  • Outstanding hours at the end of the term will jeopardize further financial aid.
  • Parents of seniors - outstanding hours will prohibit receipt of a student's diploma and transcripts.
