ISLE Senior Project
Integrated Service Learning Experience:
The mission and culture of the Kennedy Catholic community strives to graduate leaders who follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ life calls and challenges every member of the Kennedy Catholic community to respond to the needs of others, especially the poor and marginalized, through works of service. Kennedy Catholic’s Integrated Service Learning Experience (ISLE) facilitates student academic learning through meaningful service experiences, assisting students in responding to the Gospel call. ISLE encourages students to deepen their personal sense of responsibility for the needs of others while using Catholic Social Teaching as a framework for reflection. By graduation, each Kennedy Catholic student will have completed a minimum of 50 hours of service with a culminating cross-curricular paper and panel presentation.
