All Blake students participate in community involvement projects that are woven into the classroom curriculum through our service learning program. Service learning at Blake provides students a better understanding of themselves, the world in which they live, and the opportunity and responsibility they have to improve both. As a result of their engagement in service learning, students develop lifelong habits of heart and mind and action that lead to lives as responsible world citizens.
