The Christian Service program at St. John's Jesuit provides service opportunities above and beyond what is required in Theology classes for juniors and seniors. The program works with about 30 different agencies in the Toledo area, most of which serve the most marginalized people of the community. Students may serve after school, on weekends, or may be released from school. Students sign up for a semester at a time and may sign up for all four semesters during their junior and senior years.
A mandatory part of the Christian Service program is that each student servant takes part in three group reflection sessions, which include a written component, during the semester he serves. The Christian Service program affords St. John's Jesuit students the opportunity to take what they have learned in their required service and put it into action in a truly voluntary sense.
The Christian Service program is a major component of a St. John's Jesuit education and assists the school in fulfilling its mission statement which reads:
St. John's Jesuit develops Christian Leaders. As a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, we inspire each student to achieve his greatest potential in a diverse, Christ-centered atmosphere distinguished by academic success and service as a man for others.
