Service learning is an integral part of the Kirby educational experience. We pair service projects, which are hands on learning opportunities, with classroom lessons--producing a holistic learning experience.
Community Involvement Day was inspired by students who sought partnership and support from Kirby in designing academically integrated programs that serve their community. Last year, Kirby faculty, staff and students logged over 1,000 hours of service in one day alone.
Students have taken water samples on behalf of the county, worked at election polls, organized school-wide clothing swaps, and more. Students are encouraged to pursue capstone projects for their Intensive Paths or Independent Study courses in their own areas of interest. These experiences build leadership skills and provide deeper insight into social, economic, environmental, and other forces that shape our community.
