Community Service

The Service Program at St. Mary’s Academy is grounded in our Loretto tradition and puts the Loretto School Values of faith, community, justice, and respect into action. Service provides students an opportunity to begin fulfilling the commitment to love, to learn from those they serve, and to discover their ability to make a difference.

Service is a vital component of St. Mary’s Academy. Starting in Junior Kindergarten, students begin to understand issues around people in need, so even simple collection drives become lessons in compassionate living. The breadth of service at St. Mary’s Academy helps shape appreciation of how each individual contributes to the balance of our global society. The scope of service opportunities and requirements increases as students progress through the grades.

 

St. Mary’s Academy has enjoyed ongoing relationships with many well-regarded organizations. Some service sites include: Food Bank of the Rockies, Whiz Kids Tutoring, Adam’s Camp, Project Angel Heart, Art for the Nations, The Action Center, Bessie’s Hope, Habitat for Humanity Denver, Clothes to Kids Denver, Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, Metro Caring, Warren Village, The Children’s Hospital, Special Olympics Colorado
