Serving others, a hallmark of the Christian faith, is an important part of a student’s learning at AYA. Teachers encourage students to widen their perspective by learning about needs within the local and global community. Through service initiatives, students learn the power of participation as well as leadership since they are encouraged to take an active role in addressing needs within the community.
Throughout the school year, students take part in several service opportunities to help instil the value of putting others before themselves. Several service learning are provided to students throughout the year, and a selected list includes:
- Thanksgiving Food Drive
- Christmas Clothing Drive
- SafeHouse Atlanta
- Service Week at AYA
- 8th Grade Philanthropy Initiative
