Reflective of the Quaker belief that each person has a responsibility to the larger community, the Lower School at Penn Charter participates in service projects throughout the year. Each grade is responsible for organizing and running specific service learning projects. Traditionally, the Lower School as a whole undertakes additional projects throughout the year.
One such project that most of the Lower School student and parent community takes part in is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. On this national holiday, the Lower School provides meaningful service in the Philadelphia region.
