Service Program

Pedro Arrupe, SJ (Former Superior General, Society of Jesus)

Today our prime educational objective must be to form men and women for others; men and women who live not for themselves but for God and his Christ …men and women who cannot even conceive of love of God which does not include love of the least of their neighbors—for the God man who lived and died for all the world; men and women completely convinced that love of God which does not issue in justice for people is a farce.
The Ignatian Service Program at Regis Jesuit High School builds upon itself so that each year students are encouraged to expand and deepen their commitment to become Men and Women with and for Others

Service Program Requirements

List of 3 items.

  • Freshman Year

    Freshmen will complete 10 documented hours serving their local community (neighbors, parishes, schools, non-profit organizations, Regis Jesuit, etc.) in new ways initiated throughout the year on their own time.
  • Sophomore Year

    Sophomores begin to explore how they fit into the larger community and the gifts they have to share with that community. Sophomores need 20 documented hours. Up to five of those hours may come from helping at Regis Jesuit (at school events like LARK, Open House, Spruce Up days, etc.). Sophomores are encouraged to become leaders in the school, taking the initiative to help out wherever needed. At least 10 documented hours must come from working with non-profit organizations that serve the poor and marginalized. This service does not need to be direct service with the poor and marginalized. All sophomores also participate in a Sophomore Service Day which accounts for the remaining five hours. The students spend this school day serving at different organizations throughout the Greater Denver area.  
  • Junior and Senior Years

    During these two years, students expand their experience of service by recognizing and sharing in the diverse gifts people have to offer, especially people most marginalized from society. Both junior and senior year, students participate in two-week Service Projects where they work in direct service with one agency. During that time, they should complete at least 60 hours of service. As a way to further explore and reflect on what it means to be Men and Women with and for Others in daily life, students need to complete an additional 25 hours of direct service with the poor and marginalized. Students may start to accrue these hours during the summer prior to junior year.
