Service Learning

Welcome to the Student Service Learning Home Page

Each county in the state of Maryland has designed a service learning program in accordance with the state service-learning requirement. This handbook is designed to assist students in meeting this requirement in Baltimore County and specifically at Loch Raven High School.

Ultimately, each student is responsible for meeting the service learning requirement. Loch Raven, however, will help by providing opportunities for students to engage in service either in curriculum-based projects, through extra curricular activities and/or by accepting service performed at outside organizations, and by keeping a cumulative record of students' service.

If, at any time, you have questions regarding aspects of meeting this graduation requirement, you may contact Loch Raven's Service-Learning Coordinator at 410-887-3525 or [email protected].
