Service Learning

Service Learning is known as ASPire to Serve at ASP. 

ASPire to Serve is an overarching, multi-program effort to create and nurture positive change in the local and global ASP community. Providing a compassionate environment and learning to be a Global Citizen are both parts of our school's mission statement, and our ASPire to Learn program helps provide this for our students. We believe that Service Learning is vital because it connects student learning in the classroom with real-world experiences in the community and the world. Students who participate in ASPire to Serve initiatives are more deeply engaged in community responsibility while also gaining practical skills, developing their personal interests, and become better engaged citizens. We work to instil the values of service in our our students so that they continue service work for the rest of their lives, beyond ASP.
