Zeal to Serve
We partner with parents in their child's academic journey but also in fostering a zeal to serve within this next generation. As school and home join together to provide diverse opportunities, students learn how God designed and gifted them and, ultimately, discern their particular calling.
Student service partnerships at Central have included Children's Hospital, Promise Christian Academy, ThriVe St. Louis, the Albert Pujols Foundation, the Humane Society, and more. From tying fleece blankets for patients in a hospital, to engaging with children with special needs through fun activities, to reading books aloud to animals in shelters, Central students see that God is using them right now, and they don't have to grow up before serving others.
In the Summit, our 5th and 6th Grade program, we are grateful to partner with Harvest Ministries of Central Presbyterian Church. As part of their science program, our oldest students grow seedlings in a greenhouse and raised beds that are later delivered to local immigrants and refugees. These new St. Louisans replant them in their own backyard gardens.
