Service learning is an important aspect in the PEACE Academy.  We expect our students to take what they learn in the classroom in order to serve others in the community.  Our students are expected to complete a minimum of 115 hours by the time they graduate.  25 hours will be completed by freshmen year. In 10th and 11th grades, students are expected to complete 30 hours (15 hours each semester) of service learning to stay on track for graduation.
