Servant Leadership
 /  Servant Leadership

Faith is not a spectator sport. To better understand and appreciate God’s love, we must put our faith into action. For students to grow spiritually, they must break out of their comfort zone and allow others to challenge their closely-held beliefs. STM believes that this growth and maturation happens through service to others and intimate, sometimes sensitive, discussions with people of different backgrounds and experiences.

STM’s Center for Servant Leadership & Civic Engagement integrates into all aspects of the school – academics, athletics, and extracurricular clubs – to stress shared, societal values, such as humility, wisdom, honor, and community. Inspired by Jesus’s life as a servant leader, the Center seeks to create a school culture that emphasizes community involvement to transform students into leaders who place service of others first in their lives. The Center helps students:


  1. Understand their unique calling to serve others;
  2. Gain a global perspective while placing their own lives into a broader context; and
  3. Advocate for the voiceless and marginalized;
  4. Lead and inspire others to use their skills and talents to improve their community.


Building on the ideas of Robert K. Greenleaf, the founder of modern servant leadership theory, the Center’s four-year, tiered curriculum utilizes guest speakers, professional mentoring, service opportunities, retreats, and group discussions to provide students with diverse perspectives and opportunities to leave their comfort zone as they explore their role as a servant leader.

To help our students develop into responsible, open-minded, and courageous citizens, STM exposes students to many different subjects and ideas, equips them with practical and transferable skills, and instills them with strong sense of values, ethics, and civic engagement. Strengthened by our diversity and multiculturalism, STM students are challenged with perspectives different than their own, helping them cultivate a more comprehensive understanding of complex, societal issues. This collaborative learning environment helps students find their passion while teaching them to remain respectful to others. After four years at STM, students are ready to become active participants in their community and their democracy.
