Community Service

A Tradition of Service

More than 90% of students are involved in Sandia Prep's voluntary Community Service program.

Through student-led projects, Sandia Prep students discover the joy of service to others while making a positive impact in the community. By encouraging students to serve, we hope to cultivate lifelong servant leaders who will continue to make a difference in their communities long after they leave Prep.

Some of the many service projects led by our students include:

Bosque Restoration
Students assist with Bosque reclamation efforts.

Cuidando Los Niños
Sandia Prep students help at a daycare for homeless children.

United Blood Services Blood Drive
