As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
Each year the whole school participates in Retreat. During this time of community building each student is observed and the staff takes time to get to know them better. After Retreat, students are paired with other students of varying grade-levels and 1-2 adult mentors. Mentorship Groups then happen in a formal, small-group way on Friday afternoons. The main focus of this transformational time is on growing from the inside-out. Mentors may choose to review teachings from our chapel services or other biblically-based material . Other character-building activities are done during this time as well with the hope that as we participate in various activities we learn how to live and serve well together. Mentorship continues to happen in informal ways through regular contact with their assigned mentor and throughout the week, as well as other staff and students who are encouraging and pouring into each other’s lives.
