Service-learning--community service tied to academic learning--has become a common instructional strategy in schools across the country. Senior and culminating projects-- multidimensional projects through which graduating high school seniors demonstrate their accumulated knowledge and skills--are becoming increasingly common as well. This paper explores the challenges and benefits of combining these two educational strategies, provides examples of existing highquality programs, and offers some questions for consideration by educational leaders and policymakers.
