Servant Leadership Opportunity for SCCS High School Students: Serving in “Scholarship to God's Glory,” SCCS’ California Scholarship Federation utilizes academic achievement and gifting to serve the SCCS student body and wider community.
Throughout the year, students have the opportunity to serve SCCS students by helping tutor athletes, secondary students and elementary students. Additionally, CSF students organize SCCS’ Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection each fall and provide refreshments to secondary students during semester exams.
Last year SCCS’ CSF sent a team to represent our school at the JPL Invention Challenge and we hope to send another team this year. This is a great opportunity for high school students to obtain leadership and servant experience, as all colleges and universities recognize the academic achievement that membership in CSF represents. Students also include specific details about their experiences in CSF in the written portion of their college and scholarship applications.

CSF membership is based on report card grades for high school classes from the course list below. Students can join at the beginning of the second semester their freshman year (since 1st semester is their first high school report card), all the way through their senior year.
