Spiritual Life Retreat 2019

Seniors depart early, leaving on Wednesday, October 9, and the 9th through 11th-grade students join them on October 10. The High School Spiritual Life Retreat provides a time for students and faculty to connect with each other outside the academic setting in order to develop godly, healthy relationships. 

The theme for this year's retreat is "Be Transformed".  Our speaker, Caleb Middleton, PCA Class of 2009, is the Assistant Pastor at Shelby Bible Church in Shelby Township, Michigan.

1. Students will gain increased familiarity with Shakespeare’s plays and understand the social and political conditions under which Elizabethan actors worked to perform them.

2. Students will learn some of the ways the Welsh cultural identity differs from other parts of the UK.

3. Students will come to understand how the cultural and political traffic between London and Ireland over the centuries affected different parts of the country in radically different ways.

TRANSCRIPT REQUESTS: PCA is partnering with PARCHMENT to make ordering transcripts easier for you. Seniors were sent an email last Spring during Explore Week on how to register for this service. Sending transcripts electronically to most colleges is free thru PARCHMENT. If you find there is a fee, please see Mrs. Zambeck to order a paper copy instead. The site also has a search tool to help students find colleges that match their interests.
