社区服务 is at the heart of what it means to be a student at Pennington. Whether it is participating weekly in the 社区 Cares club or jumping in the pool with fourth-graders at a Gym & Swim, 彭宁顿 students and faculty immerse themselves in a culture of service that reflects our core values of Honor, Virtue, and Humility.
At 彭宁顿, we believe that service is a large part of what it means to be a good citizen. Since we expect our students to be good citizens, we neither require service nor officially track student service hours. However, because of their close involvement with the HomeFront holiday party, Gym & Swims, Spring Break service trips, and our annual 社区 Day, virtually 100% of our students do participate in some form of community service.
Projects throughout the year are based on tradition, need, and student initiatives; this approach ensures a dynamic variety of opportunities. Traditions include the HomeFront holiday party, Run for the Cure, Race for the Cure, and Shoot for a Cure, Gym & Swim, annual trips to Haiti and other international destinations, tutoring at Grant Elementary, STEM projects at the Christina Seix Academy, and the Red Cross Blood Drive.
