Community Service Learning

Serve your community and earn a credit towards graduation!


Community Service Learning is an approach to teaching and learning in which students use academic knowledge and skills to address genuine community needs.


As a way to help foster civic responsibility, Arkansas Act 648 allows students to earn one credit towards graduation after completing 75 hours of approved community service learning over their high school career (grades 9-12).


To qualify for the credit, students must:

  1. Complete their service learning with a certified service agency (click here for the certified service agency list) or as part of a service-learning school program or student organization. (Ex. DECA, FFA, Athletic Team or Group volunteering with Race for the Cure)
  2. Document individual preparation, action, and reflection using the form link below, this allows you to designate learning.
