Leadership Service

Each year, Santa Margarita's "Coeur a Coeur" (Heart to Heart) Margaret Mary Award recognizes students for leadership in service for those students who achieve more than 120 hours of direct service over and above their Christian service projects.

Please note:

  • All extracurricular hours must provide direct (face to face) contact with our underserved community (people who are physically, emotionally and/or economically disadvantaged), focus on restoring health and integrity to creation and creatures or actively teach a student’s faith. 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.
