Each year, Saint Peter’s Prep runs a number of week-long Christian Service summer immersion trips. Students and faculty who participate in these trips speak of engaging and eye-opening experiences. These trips are a chance for Prep students to leave their comfort zones behind for a week and live in solidarity with people who are poor and marginalized.
These trips fall into three categories:
- Immersion Trips (Junior Year): Week-long trips to sites in the rural Appalachian region or an Eastern city, which fulfill the 60 hour junior service requirement.
- Habitat for Humanity Trips (Senior Year): Opportunities for rising seniors to volunteer their time building a house for a family in need.
- Mission Trips: Service/immersion trips that follow a particular class year through their Prep career. These provide an opportunity to work at the sites that students raise money for during Mission Drive!
