One of Avon Grove Charter School's core values is that of promoting service. We are committed to the concept that service extends beyond our school walls and that it makes a positive impact on the surrounding communities. As a Charter School that attracts students from across multiple districts in Chester County, AGCS students have the opportunity to serve multiple communities, organizations, and people within the surrounding area.
To promote this value, AGCS requires students to complete a minimum of five (5) documented community service hours each year they are in middle school. This is a promotion requirement. Failure to complete the required community service hours, whether school or community based, can result in the school withholding a student's report card, ineligibility to participate in end of year field trips or activities, and delay in the process of grade level promotion.
Community Service is defined as any service activity that contributes to the well being of the community and/or school for which there is no compensation for the individual.
