Service Learning at High Point Academy: Taking Learning Outside of the Classroom

Our Service Learning Program allows the students of High Point Academy, Preschool through 8th Grade, the opportunity to take their learning outside the four walls of the classroom. This project based learning aligns with grade level state standards and allows students to research problems in their community they believe they can have a positive impact and effect on.

Grade level teams engage in activities to educate themselves, raise awareness of those around them, fundraise, and donate their time to make a difference towards these local issues. This allows for deeper student insight, dialogue and reflection by making a connection between what is learned in the classroom and what is occurring in their community. Take a look at all of the amazing things that are happening here at HPA!

US Again Clothes Drive PK-8

Together High Point Academy and HPA PTO is combining efforts to help clothe people, reduce waste in our landfills and help plant trees for the environment.

Currently we are participating in a national fundraiser hosted by USAgain to collect the most clothes and shoes for a chance to be one of the top 10 schools to win cash prizes up to $2,000.

We are collecting gently used clothes and shoes in the TreeMachine outside of the school starting Monday, September 14th through Wednesday, October 14th.

Also, for every pound of clothes/shoes collected a tree is planted.
