Personal Growth

Without facing new challenges in our lives, we cannot grow to the potential for which God created us. Students are challenged to grow academically, of course, but they are also challenged to grow socially, spiritually, and even physically.

Living away from home allows students the necessary independence to mature in new ways.  But this independence is balanced by interdependence, as students are challenged by peers and chaperones to become the individual God created them to be. This accountability to peers and mentors can be tougher than accountability to parents.

Students are also given time to reflect, meditate, and grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ. And by giving of  their physical abilities on  service projects, students develop the endurance and work ethic necessary to become positive, participating members of any community.
