At Western Reserve Academy, we are all about antidotes. We integrate joy and balance into our programming to support mental wellness, we facilitate independence to combat overparenting, applied learning to prepare our students for what comes next. We are graduating world-changers, after all. So it’s no wonder that community outreach is as essential to our curriculum as our core subjects. Being in service to others is an antidote to just about everything, especially during the holidays.

We asked student leaders and community members why service is important. We couldn’t say it better ourselves.
