Each year, Santa Margarita's "Coeur a Coeur" (Heart to Heart) Award recognizes students who have completed more than 120 hours of direct service over and above their Christian service projects.
- Only students who have completed their grade level service project are eligible to receive the Coeur a Coeur Award.
- All extracurricular hours must come from direct (face-to-face) service. All agencies need to be nonprofit, except for hospitals.
- Extracurricular service hours, done outside of the designated grade level service project, should be designated as extracurricular in x2Vol.
- When verifying hours, please keep in mind they cannot be verified by a parent, relative or SMCHS student.
