As part of a Catholic, Lasallian ministry, the service program at Christian Brothers Academy is directly influenced by the belief that service, faith, and justice are inextricably linked. Christian service is not just an accumulation of hours - but rather a process of preparation, action, and reflection. Through the service program, students will have the opportunity to develop new talents and commit to projects they are passionate about.
Lasallian Service Groups
The Lasallian Service Groups for Junior and Senior High at CBA are organized to incorporate faith, community and service into student life. Through participation in service projects both in and out of school, and by learning about the importance of reaching out to others, students learn to make a difference in their world.
As a requirement for graduation, each senior is expected to complete a minimum of 32 hours of Christian service to people in need. CBA engages its students in service opportunities that help make a positive impact in and around Syracuse.
Each student is allowed to choose an area of service that fits his/her particular interest. Students have performed service at various elementary schools, the Samaritan Center, Senior Centers and Nursing Homes, Meals on Wheels, the Rescue Mission, Francis House, Syracuse Challenger Baseball, Catholic Charities, Ronald McDonald House, just to name a few.
