Upper School Community Service

When students encounter a range of perspectives, their understanding of the world becomes richer.


Starting as early as kindergarten, we integrate community service into a Seven Hills education. We want to instill in students the value of empathy and their ability and responsibility to help others.

Service opportunities vary as much as our students—they volunteer at local hospitals, participate in micro lending programs that benefit people around the world, raise funds to benefit the Cooperative for Education, and work to clean up the community.

Upper School Service Opportunities

Every Seven Hills upper school student commits to and completes an extensive community service project. But, central as that project is to the Seven Hills experience, many of our students graduate with far more than the required community service hours, giving freely of their time throughout Greater Cincinnati.

Our Upper School students participate in a variety of service projects such as:

  • Serve breakfast on Saturday mornings at the Bethany House, a facility for homeless and disadvantaged women and children
  • Participate in Community Service Day, when they lend a helping hand around the community. They clear brush and volunteer at Matthew 25: Ministries, the Children’s Home, and Crayons to Computers
  • Volunteer to be a “Big Reader” and work with emerging readers in pre-kindergarten
  • Participate in the Senior Culminating Experience, a day where graduating seniors visit local charitable organizations and give back
  • Tutor lower school students at neighboring Cincinnati Public Schools
  • Spearhead their own efforts to better Seven Hills and the Cincinnati community
