Christian Virtual School (CVS) students interested in earning the Ontario Secondary School Diploma are required to earn 30 credits (18 compulsory), meet the Secondary School Literacy Graduation Requirement and complete at least 40 hours of community involvement activities.

At CVS, we recognize the sense of belonging that being a part of a community can bring. We encourage students to exercise their civic responsibility and strengthen their own communities by getting involved. The acts of service that students partake in will help them to grow, both spiritually and academically. Volunteer opportunities are a great way to explore possible occupations or fields of work that may be of interest.

When selecting volunteer opportunities, students are to complete unpaid work and each activity should be approved before beginning. The selected activities are to be aligned with a student’s age, maturity, and ability. Students are not to partake in any activity in which personal safety will be compromised. A list of eligible and ineligible activities can be found on our website. Upon enrollment, CVS students will receive a Community Involvement Tracking Booklet with further information.

CVS encourages our students to find volunteer opportunities that align with their values and that are important to them. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available, including virtual volunteering. Students are encouraged to reach out to with any questions related to the Community Involvement requirement.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in it’s various forms. – 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)
