A vital component of the curriculum at CFS concerns our work and community service programs, both of which are intended to involve students in the process of helping others and contributing meaningfully to the greater community.
By interacting with others inside and outside of the CFS community, these programs teach our students practical skills while promoting self-worth and self-confidence.
The C.O.R.E. (Challenge of Required Experience) Program offers students a wide variety of community service programs from which to choose during the year. Students participating in the Work Program perform a variety of jobs on campus such as assistance in the library or Learning Center, peer tutoring, routine cleaning and maintenance and kitchen duty.
The Challenge of Required Experience (CORE) is a four-part integrated program of experiential education. It is designed to offer a variety of opportunities which will help students mature both socially and emotionally. This co-curricular program is designed to involve students in their communities, both school and beyond, develop students’ sense of responsibility for their environment, promote student leadership, recognize cultural diversity, experience the arts and build students’ self-confidence and awareness. Students are required to be involved in the following areas during the school year.
