Crescent’s Character-In-Action programs provide our boys with authentic opportunities to develop character outside of the classroom.

Outreach Service Trips

Our Outreach Service Trips provide hands-on community service combined with life-altering cultural immersion experiences.

These are powerful opportunities for our Upper School boys to gain a broader understanding of the world and how they can positively affect the lives of others.

All trips are led by Crescent School staff and are developed in partnership with local service providers. Students complete a learning component before and after their trip to add depth to their experience. Each trip provides community service hours and some are eligible for Duke of Edinburgh’s Award requirements.
"Learning about a completely different culture was extremely eye-opening." – Sam Li, 2019 trip participant

"I had the time of my life while giving back and I was able to see the difference we made.” - Noah Maunder, 2019 trip participant

"There are moments in the trip when we have to step out of our comfort zone; however, those are also the moments where magic took place and brought the best out of me. I learned the importance of finding my own pace and embraced the culture, thoughts, and obstacles we would never experience in the classroom!" – Patrick Su, 2019 trip participant

This was an experience of a lifetime. The people I met, the friends I made and the lessons I learned will stick with me for a long, long time.” – Ted Ferris, 2018 trip participant
