High School Fall Retreat
Three weeks into the school year, the high school students participate in a three day retreat. Retreat locations change each year within a 4-year cycle, including Washinton, DC; New York City, NY; Williamsburg, VA; and Johnstown, PA. In addition to visiting historic sites and enjoying plenty of fun and fellowship , students focus on spiritual themes that will serve as a rudder for the upcoming school year, it is also a time for the returning high school students to reconnect after summer break and to welcome the incoming ninth grade students. The high school fall retreat is perhaps the key event in which students begin the process of intentional community building.
