Giving back to the community is a fundamental part of a Foxcroft education – and has been since the all girls boarding school in Virginia was founded. Today, 我们使用服务学习模型, in which students engage in activities with intentional learning goals and dedicated time for reflection to undergird programs from curricular-based initiatives such as EPICS 从非营利到正规的持续合作关系, occasional, and ad hoc service opportunities coordinated by our full-time Service Learning Coordinator — and learn to care about and make a difference in the world around them.
