Service leadership is a key component to some colleges’ decisions in admitting students. Eastbrook Academy students are encouraged to volunteer in their homes, churches and local communities. In addition, students have opportunities throughout the school year to participate in community service activities (listed below).
For more information, contact the College Guidance Advisor.
