The Jackson Academy Service and Learning Plan is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. The Service and Learning Plan is based upon the principles found in the school’s mission statement. By committing to help others in need, students are challenged to become responsible citizens, while growing spiritually, emotionally, socially, and physically.

Documenting Hours

  • Students will submit appropriate documentation to the Service and Learning Coordinator for consideration and approval of volunteer work. Any service hours to be earned during school must be approved by a dean prior to service.
  • Permission and documentation forms will be provided through the Service and Learning Coordinator in the secondary school library or online at the previous links.
  • Non-school related service, including summer service, will be considered as long as appropriate documentation is provided and approved.


These forms are used to document hours worked on community service projects or to give permission to participate on projects located off campus or outside of school hours.

Please return the signed and completed form to Mrs. Bronwyn Burford in the Middle and Upper School Library.
