We seek to foster a spirit of generosity at Lipscomb Academy by providing opportunities for students to serve both locally and internationally.
Each grade level at the Elementary School partners with a non-profit where students have an opportunity to give and serve. From building playgrounds in Haiti to sending Magi boxes to Honduras to partnering with local non-profits, students at an early age are given opportunities to help others and begin seeing fruit of the good they can do in the world.
In the Middle School, students in each grade are engaged in service learning projects where service is paired with curriculum. Students learn how to apply their academic curriculum to serve others. From partnering with local groups like Youth Encouragement Services for a toy drive to sponsoring a cricket tournament to support a school in Bangladesh, Middle school students begin to see the breadth of service opportunities available to them.
As students enter High School, they earn one service learning credit each year, as well as complete 60 hours of service. This service is done in many sectors of the Nashville community and the world. Students are encouraged to become involved in their churches and local agencies, as well as serve on domestic and international mission trips.
Because we are an intentionally Christian community, Lipscomb Academy believes that the best life to live is one where you put others before yourself while learning how to use your gifts in service to God’s Kingdom. Service opportunities embody this central belief.
