Spiritual Life


Philippians 2:3-4

‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

Our Chapel program encourages students to explore and strengthen their own spirituality in an inclusive and welcoming setting. Chapel offers a retreat from the busy pace of classes, athletics, arts, and clubs. Community is built through prayers and presentations, and through students and faculty members sharing announcements about meetings, competitions, accomplishments, birthdays, and more after the service.

    At the heart of chapel is the willingness of members of the community - both students and teachers - to talk about their personal journeys, their families' cultural traditions, their life lessons and their hopes for the future.
Our School Prayer: O heavenly Father, who has given us Thy Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Friend and example, help us to understand His friendship, and to do such things as will please Him. Bless us in our work and in our play. Make us gentle, generous, truthful, kind, and brave. Keep us in purity of heart, and let the life of our school go on from strength to strength and have its place and meaning in Thy kingdom. All of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
