Service to the community and the school is an integral part of the Middle School experience at Lancaster Country Day. Sixth-grade students can assist in maintaining the landscaping and learning gardens that enhance our school. The students in seventh grade have pre-K buddies and participate weekly in educational games, read together, and generally providing positive role models for our youngest students. Each trimester, the eighth-grade theatre class performs for a local retirement community, extending the role of service to the community at large. In addition, seventh and eighth graders are invited to volunteer with our Horizons program, which serves low-income public school students from the School District of Lancaster in the summer and on Saturdays. Advisory groups regularly participate in service projects, such as book and food drives to benefit community organizations throughout Lancaster.
