Community Leaf Raking

Laker high school students spend a day raking leaves for parish and community members who were unable to complete the task on their own.

The senior class makes Christmas cookies every year for the St. Joseph Fire Department and Police Department.

Some of our High School students go on a mission trip to the U.P. to work with a Native American tribe, the National Forest Service and a local Catholic Parish.

Big Brothers/Big Sisters Mentoring Program – A group of our seniors meet each week to mentor at-risk youth in the Benton Harbor Area Schools. They not only do this during their early dismissal hour, they also meet on half days and when our school is not in session.
