NYMA Graduates and their families celebrate their accomplishments!
NYMA has service learning specifically integrated into the curriculum. Students must complete fifty (50) hours of service by May 1st of their senior year. Service may begin the summer prior to a student’s freshmen year. Students who enrolled after the first semester of their freshmen year will complete a pro-rated requirement equal to 6.25 hours times the number of full semesters enrolled at NYMA.
Coordinating Your Community Service
- Submit all required and official documentation to the Academic Office. All hours must be submitted on official organization letterhead with contact information.
- The activities that students may participate in vary, but general guidelines require long-term, documented activities. They include: service from after-school and weekend events sponsored by the school and its organizations, volunteer activities outside of the school calendar, or a pre-approved personal program designed by the student where they volunteer at home, elsewhere, or during furloughs.
- Most service must be performed outside of school hours unless under the direct supervision of a staff member. However, the NYMA Honor Guard and Color Guard often have off-campus commitments that count toward community service. Another such opportunity would be peer tutoring. The Math Department chair coordinates math tutoring and the National Honor Society adviser coordinates the academic areas.
