Spiritual Life At NDA
Service remains a very integral part of our curriculum. Service Requirements are explained to the different grade levels during their religion classes in the first few weeks of school.
We will continue to use MobileServe as our service tracking platform. Any service work completed at or for a non-profit should be logged into MobileServe.
2022 - 2023 Service Requirements
1. Each Grade level has a specific requirement attached to their religion class for service each year. (See descriptions below) . These hours CANNOT count towards any Honor Society Goals.
