Service Cord Qualification Outline
Graduation student service cords can be earned through your community service and involvement in Bethlehem Academy clubs, Student Service Club and SADD. Since our Student Service Club disbanded two years ago, we are putting into place a Service Cord application for all current 10th-12th grade students (2022-23).
Bethlehem Academy, founded on the pillars of Dominican society, believes that ministry is an integral part of the development of our relationship with God. BA students are asked to focus beyond the relationship they may personally have with Jesus; students are asked to share the love of God with others.
Service is a required part of being a student at Bethlehem Academy. Service is part of the five tenets of being a student at Bethlehem Academy: Character, Accountability, Respect, Decision-Making and Service. Students who provide service 172 hours during their four years as a BA high school student are eligible for service recognition and the honor of wearing a blue cord during their graduation ceremony.
* To be evaluated after two years.
Application due date will be determined in the Spring semester of 2024
