Senior Formation

What We Accomplish In Year Four...

In their final year at Saint Ignatius College Prep, students come together with their families twice during the year - first at the Welcome Back Mass, and then, again, at the Baccalaureate Mass at year’s end. As in every other formation year, seniors get protected class time to pray and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Advent and Lent.

Retreats are the experiences that really bond members of every senior class. Each senior  participates in a retreat of his or her choosing. These four-day experiences are the culmination of Faith life at Saint Ignatius. 

List of 3 items.

  • Arrupe Mentorship

    Senior students can train to become Arrupe mentors, helping freshmen adapt to life at Saint Ignatius College Prep.
  • Kairos Leadership

    Senior students who feel called to Faith leadership for Kairos engage in an intensive, eight-week formation program that invites them into a deeper discipleship rooted in a philosophy of servant leadership. The formation that precedes Kairos is the most involved of any Formation and Ministry program. The hope is the students who participate, will become the future leaders of our Church and the world.
  • Liturgical Leadership

    Saint Ignatius seniors can train to become Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion to share the Eucarist at Mass.
