Additionally, Charlottesville Catholic students do have to meet a required number of service hours, which can be achieved through classroom and school wide community service initiatives, as well as through outside organizations and events. The school consistently strives to increase the number of hours given back to the community every year, and has reached nearly 7,000 hours this past year!
