Middle school retreats are a time for the students to interact with the faculty in a casual setting. Retreat activities are directed by the Middle School Religion Teacher. Sixth grade retreats are held on campus; the seventh and eighth grade students travel off campus. The purpose of the retreats is to help students grow in their faith and to learn more about their relationship with God and one another.
The seventh and eighth grade retreats are a combination of multi-disciplinary activities and an interaction with the natural world where students can acquire new knowledge and recognize that information learned in school exists outside the classroom as well. The purpose is to teach the students an appreciation of the natural world and to use the environment as a stimulus for learning.
The eighth grade retreat is held in the fall of each year. Sixth and seventh grade retreats are held in the spring of each year.
