Service is a Part of Life at Bullis
Every student can make a difference.
A key component of Bullis' balanced approach is including opportunities for students to gain broader perspectives on their world. Locally, students regularly engage in a range of community service projects, from single events to ongoing commitments with shelters, food banks, and other organizations that provide services in the community.
All Seniors participate in a week with Habitat for Humanity. Other service efforts include the All-School Cereal Drive, Thanksgiving Basket donations and Pie Bake, support for deployed military, toy drive, Alzheimer’s Walk, and Polar Bear Plunge.
Students also initiate service projects that are quickly woven into the community fabric. Service is not required at Bullis, but these projects are popular because they enable students to connect with each other and the wider community while giving back.
Each year, Upper School students regularly participate in community service projects — not to fulfill a requirement, but to serve others and learn how much is to be gained when you give back.
