The School's Community Service Program encourages all Lawrentians to connect with the greater
community, giving them the opportunity to engage with a variety of people outside the students'
immediate world. Because we want students to have a common service experience that enhances their
Lawrenceville education and builds community within and beyond the gates, the Community Service
graduation requirement is not based on a certain number of hours that a student must complete.
Instead, students participate in three different types of community engagement.
- Lawrenceville Community Action Project (LCAP) to be completed in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade. LCAP examples include: a one-term weekly project (coordinated by CS office); being a counselor at Lawrenceville School Camp or Performing Arts Camp; or participating in a Harkness Travel Program Service Trip.
- Annual participation in the School’s Martin Luther King All-School Day of Service
- One-time events (All-School, House, club or team sponsored): 1-3 times before graduation depending on student’s entering year.
Students may choose from over 30 different weekly projects in the Trenton-Princeton-Lawrenceville
area. Typically, students do these projects during the evening or on Sunday afternoons if they are
playing a School sport, or on a Wednesday or Friday afternoon if they are involved in House or
