Missouri Academy

Community Service Opportunities

Community service is one dimension of IQ (Integrity and Quality) and is an important part of the living and learning environment at the Missouri Academy. Students are encouraged to participate in meaningful voluntary community service activities throughout the academic year. During the May session, every student is required to enroll in a month-long three-, four-, or five-credit course of their choice. Participation in community service is completely optional during that time.

Past community service projects have included painting and community revitalization within Maryville and helping at the local nursing homes. Missouri Academy students regularly participate in a university program entitled Beautifying Residences Using Student Help (BRUSH) as well as other programs such as Trick-Can-Treating, Adopt-A-Family programs, Missouri Hope and the Nodaway County Animal Shelter. The Missouri Academy also partners with the Horace Mann Laboratory School to provide community service opportunities with their students.
