Christian Service Learning
Caritas - Veritas - Unitas
Welcome to Malvern Prep Christian Service Learning(CSL). I am thrilled to be part of this journey with our young Friars and help them see the face of Jesus by helping those in need in our communities.
With our Christian Service-Learning launch-students, faculty, staff, alumni, and families are invited to participate in dedicated school days that will offer both on and off campus service opportunities to help those in need. In addition, valuable CSL activities will be offered to promote volunteer work with and for the poor. Christian Service is a concrete way to put faith into practice. Whether students are delivering hot meals to people experiencing homelessness or hosting a Christmas party for underprivileged children, these shared experiences help students put their faith into action and generate life-changing insights.
We are excited to launch x2VOL, an online record and reflection platform, for the 2021-22 academic year. This advanced technology will empower students to record CSL experiences and reflect on the very important "why?" of Christian Service. All students, faculty, and staff will receive training on our exciting, new program during Orientation.

Christian Service Connection
The Augustinian values of Truth, Unity, and Love are instilled in Malvern students during their time here. These same values are put into practice during their Christian Service Trips. All juniors and seniors have the option to fulfill part of their service requirement through traveling domestically or internationally to one of multiple cities including- Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, New Orleans, Peru, and South Africa. Learn more about these trips through Global Programming.
If students would like to schedule and participate in ongoing Christian Service Learning, x2VOL will reflect ongoing opportunities. This will be updated frequently so please check your email.
