Community Service

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." – Mhatma Gandhi

Community service is an integral part of a Barnesville education. Our commitment is so steadfast, it is articulated in the School's philosophy statement. We value social responsibility and the development of personal values, cultivating an atmosphere that encourages respect, responsibility, honesty, integrity, perseverance and concern for self and others. We believe students develop social responsibility and values from involvement in community service programs and through a curriculum where adults model and reinforce those values in school, the broader community, and the world.

Barnesville students and faculty participate in both grade-specific and school-wide community service efforts each year. Annually, our school-wide efforts include a Help-the-Homeless mini-walk, a Veterans' Day celebration to raise money for the Fisher House and an adopt-a-family holiday gift program for The Dwelling Place each December. In addition, the School provides the location as well as student and volunteer support for the annual Lymphoma Research Foundation Ride each September.


Grade-specific community service activities include:

An independent private school in
Montgomery County, Maryland

through 8th grade programs.
