Service Learning Program

Service Learning Program

Guided by the mission of the Sisters of Mercy, the service learning program at Assumption High School has been in in place for over 30 years. As a Catholic school, it is important that students live their faith by learning to "love one another" and answer the call to serve as Jesus did. This dedication to service learning is evident in all areas of the school and places equal emphasis on contemplation, action, hospitality, and compassion. In addition, A Christian Through Service (ACTS), our four-year service program, provides an opportunity for our students to develop a deeper understanding of peace and justice issues as well as different cultures and lifestyles.

Assumption students learn to think globally and act locally as a part of the community.

ACTS

ACTS (A Christian Through Service) is Assumption's service learning program that has both curricular and co-curricular components. Assumption's program has been designed to "grow" with the student.

  • Freshmen ACTS focuses on learning and awareness about service opportunities in our communities.
  • Sophomore ACTS emphasizes forming relationships through direct service at preschools, grade schools, and agencies serving the elderly and those with special needs. Sophomore service is a more structured, guided 10-week program, approximately 50 hours of service performed during the school day at over 50 different agencies in the city of Louisville. 
  • Junior ACTS service program, the students are challenged to choose their agency, to do their service outside school hours, to make their own arrangements (including transportation), and to establish their own contacts and schedules. Juniors are required to complete a minimum of 15 hours of service by the end of the semester they take Catholic Social Teaching; their service is curriculum-driven and must address a social justice issue.
  • Senior ACTS calls upon students to complete a service project. This project is designed to enable seniors to follow in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley and see out the needs of our society and take action against the injustices causing them.

The organized, ongoing ACTS program is coordinated through campus ministry; however, departments throughout the school also participate in service learning on different levels.
