BISHOP KENNY HIGH SCHOOL COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENTS

Bishop Kenny students understand that religious education does not stop at the threshold of the classroom door. The Gospel calls us to the values of compassion and service to those in need. This both requires and involves interaction with the community in which our students live. Community Service is central to what Bishop Kenny stands for as a Catholic community.

Therefore all students must complete a minimum of 25 hours of community service each year they attend Bishop Kenny High School. Many students perform in excess of 100 hours of community service annually.

There are multiple opportunities provided in the Bishop Kenny NJROTC program to earn these community service hours. Some of the upcoming service events for our NJROTC Cadets are listed below.
