Service learning is an integral part of an FIS education and provides authentic learning experiences that help our students grow into adaptable, socially responsible global citizens. Projects at FIS support both the local community and people around the globe.

We believe that everyone has a responsibility to contribute positively to society and the environment, and our students take great pride in their service work – learning along the way that they can have a positive impact in our world.

While many of the school's service learning projects have been active in the school for years, FIS also supports new student initiatives each year that may respond to a current crisis or support student passions to make a difference in the local community or the world.

Student groups are supervised by faculty advisors and all associated fundraising is monitored by the school’s accounting office. The major annual fundraising event for many of the groups takes place during the FIS Applefest celebration, a community event held each fall with games and entertainment for families, and food booths operated by student groups.
