“It’s like belonging to a family of intellectuals. It seems more like a family than class.”
We believe that classical education at Nova will allow us to graduate a young adult who is a rational thinker, self-motivated learner, and demonstrated him/herself to be a person of character.
As such, we hope to graduate engaged students who are involved in their communities. This is why Nova’s graduation requirements include not just class requirements and credit expectations, but service hours as well. Students in the School of Rhetoric are required to have 80 volunteer hours completed for graduation. 40 of those hours can be volunteering for Nova. Receiving any monetary form of compensation will not meet the required hours.
For SOR volunteer requirements questions please contact David Shuman. If you need help navigating additional volunteer hours with Nova, please contact the District Receptionist.
