Community Service

At Loomis Chaffee you will be part of a community of students, faculty, and staff inspiring positive change in the world. Serving the common good is part of the ethos of the school and dates back to our Founders' vision more than 100 years ago.

Today the Director of Community Service, working with the student-led Pelican Service Organization (PSO), several other student service organizations and academic departments, plans the wide variety of service opportunities available to you.   In fact nearly all Loomis students participate in community service activities during their time on the Island. These activities are woven into all aspects of life at the school so wherever your interests may lie and whatever your availablity of time you are bound to find an opportunity to help others. And if the opportunity or particular passion you would like to pursue is not already being addressed, we will help you create that program.
