the school's community service program encourages all lawrentians to connect with the greater
community, giving them the opportunity to engage with a variety of people outside the students'
immediate world. because we want students to have a common service experience that enhances their
lawrenceville education and builds community within and beyond the gates, the community service
graduation requirement is not based on a certain number of hours that a student must complete.
instead, students participate in three different types of community engagement.
- lawrenceville community action project (lcap) to be completed in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade. lcap examples include: a one-term weekly project (coordinated by cs office); being a counselor at lawrenceville school camp or performing arts camp; or participating in a harkness travel program service trip.
- annual participation in the school’s martin luther king all-school day of service
- one-time events (all-school, house, club or team sponsored): 1-3 times before graduation depending on student’s entering year.
students may choose from over 30 different weekly projects in the trenton-princeton-lawrenceville
area. typically, students do these projects during the evening or on sunday afternoons if they are
playing a school sport, or on a wednesday or friday afternoon if they are involved in house or
