Student Life


Sophomore Service is a Sophomore Theology class requirement and an important component of the overall Theology curriculum. In the Sophomore Theology course our students encounter ways they can respond in charity to the various social justice issues that exist in our world today.
In our Sophomore Theology classes, teachers help students reflect on and process their service experience through a series of class activities, discussions and journal assignments their entire year. This is done outside the classroom by completing 30 hours of service at Magnificat (through helping with the school’s summer camps or helping to take care of the plants in the Hoop House) or in the local community beginning in the summer after their freshman year until December of their sophomore year. Many girls continue to volunteer even after completing their required hours.
