Service at St. Mark's

St. Mark’s provides students with a wide range of service opportunities, both locally and globally, to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Current community service programs include a variety of local tutoring and mentoring opportunities, service work during St. Mark’s Saturdays and Lion Term, and the St. Mark’s Global Citizenship Program that includes volunteer opportunities at Brantwood Camp and partnership with Dominican Republic elementary schools through Outreach 360. Through this service, students build intercultural knowledge and competence, gain an appreciation of personal and cultural differences, and develop leadership skills through collaboration and teamwork.


Alumna in Chapel Highlights Memorial Project in Kenya

On Tuesday, October 27, St. Mark's alumna Jess Danforth '02 was the speaker for morning chapel. She shared with the school community the story of her best friend, fellow St. Marker Caitlin O'Hara '01 (pictured at left), who died at the age of 33 of complications from cystic fibrosis. Danforth then introduced the work she was doing in East Africa as a memorial to her friend: the Leo Project.

Brantwood Camp and St. Mark's: A Century of Collaboration

1920 was a watershed year for St. Mark's School in many ways. For the first time, a process for financial aid support was introduced: meager perhaps by today's standards, but clearly a step in the right direction. That year also saw a significant renovation of Belmont Chapel, expanding it to accommodate increased enrollment and dedicating it as a memorial to those St. Markers who had served in the Great War. Another memorial to the fallen would have an even more substantial impact on the School and its philosophy. Today, St. Mark's proudly asserts in its mission statement that it "educates young people for lives of leadership and service." It was in 1920 that St. Mark's introduced its very first formal program of community service and outside leadership opportunity, when it began a collaborative relationship with Brantwood Camp in Peterborough, New Hampshire.
