Retreats are invaluable opportunities for students to take a step back, learn about themselves, their classmates, and how they can be answer the call to be servant leaders.

Retreats for students at all grade levels are held throughout the year in different formats: some might be daylong campus retreats, while others are multi-day overnight experiences. Focusing on different themes and topics, each retreat is built to meet the needs of each grade. Time for activities, games, reflection, and prayer help round out each retreat experience. 
Below is a list of our traditional retreats and a short description meant to give you an idea of each experience. While each retreat maintains its’ core focus year-to-year, programming details may evolve. Please note that St. John's offers a mix of mandatory and optional retreats. More information can be found below.

Opportunities for Parents

Because we know retreats are such invaluable experiences for our students, we also offer a variety of opportunities exclusively for parents that allow them to take some time for themselves, rejuvenate with prayer, and enjoy conversation with other parents in the St. John's Prep community.

Parents are invited to numerous retreats at the Rolling Ridge Retreat and Conference Center in North Andover to not only enjoy the gorgeous grounds, but to also participate in deep reflection. These experiences are open to parents and guardians of all faith practices, as we seek to embrace our differences in these opportunities to come together.
