"On the hill ... we give back."

As one of the four Dominican Pillars of Spirituality, service is an integral part of life at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy (FSHA). Each member of the community gives back in some way: families, students, faculty and staff.
Each of FSHA’s Tologs has a minimum number of service hours to complete but they go above and beyond with service to the poor, the elderly, the disenfranchised and in stewardship of the environment. Clubs and non-club co-curricular groups include service projects as a major component of their annual activities. Some of these groups exist as strictly service organizations; for example CAM (Christian Action Movement) runs the annual food drive, “Koins for Kids” and co-sponsors the Santa Teresita Christmas Party.
At the end of finals, just before Christmas break CAM and the senior class coordinate the Christmas Party with Santa Teresita School in Los Angeles. Each FSHA student is paired with a young buddy. In a day of shared prayer, food, performances and gifts, the Christmas spirit is alive on the Hill. Faculty, staff and parents also collect gift cards for the community of Santa Teresita.
FSHA parents give generously to the FSHA community with their time and talent. The faculty and staff boasts of 100 percent participation in the annual Flintridge Fund campaign before the end of September each year.
