  • Hours should be logged into x2Vol as they are completed. When logged, x2Vol will automatically send a confirmation email to the coordinating supervisor where they will confirm that the work has been done.
  • All hours are due by the Monday and Tuesday of Holy Week. Failure to complete hours will result in a zero in the grade book and a detention during academic time the following week. Failure to complete hours by the following week will result in a meeting with Dean of Students and Director of Faith Formation. Detentions, phone calls home and other disciplinary actions may be taken if steps are not made to complete hours.

  • Summer CSP:  Students may perform their CSP during the summer for the next school years’ credit. You will need to turn in a Pre-Approval notice to x2Vol and it will be confirmed by Mrs. O’Neil. If you wish to do a summer CSP you must be certain that it meets the requirements of your grade level or else hours may not be counted for CSP.
  • If a change of agency is required, you must fill out a new Pre-Approval entry on x2Vol and the service from the previous agency will not count to you yearly 30 hours. This is why it is extremely important that you communicate with your agency at the time of Pre-Approval.
  • The March for Life in Washington D.C. will count for 20 hours and the remaining 10 hours need to be done with a Pro-Life agency. The 10 hours need to be Pre-Approved by the normal Pre-Approval date. You cannot be Pre-Approved for the March for Life only.
  • SJA Team camps do not count for CSP.
  • Students will not be excused during school hours to work on their CSP. Any CSP hours worked during school hours will not be counted toward their 30 hours.
