Spiritual Life | Chapel Program | Mission Trips | Retreats

For over 16 years, as a part of our fall spiritual emphasis week, grades 7-12 have taken an overnight retreat. The yearly retreat is taken early in the school year (September) and has been an important part of setting the relational and spiritual atmosphere for the school year.
There are athletic events, team building activities, senior mini-teaches, guest speakers, a bon fire, services, and other activities. As the school continues to grow, this has been an excellent way to create a spirit of unity across the various age groups involved.
