Weekly Service Opportunities

Senior Service

Each spring, seniors get the opportunity to undertake a three-week community service program, contributing five days a week for seven hours a day as part of the project.

It’s not only a chance to serve, but to reflect on their own lives and recognize the force for change they can be in the world around them.

2021-22 Service Trip: Spring Break in South Korea

This trip provides Chadwick students with a wonderful opportunity to connect with our sister school, Chadwick International (CI) in Songdo, South Korea. This extraordinary experience immerses students in the culture and history of South Korea and provides first-hand connection with their peer counterparts at CI. Students attend two half days of class with their CI buddies, explore Seoul, visit the Demilitarized Zone, take classes in traditional Korean calligraphy and cuisine, and much more!
