Campus Ministry » Retreats


Each class attends one retreat per year.


Freshman Retreat

The freshman retreat is an overnight experience at SMA. Students explore what it means to be at a CSJ school, and create goals for how they want to grow in their high school journey.


Sophomore Retreat

The sophomore retreat is a two-day service retreat. On the first day students participate in a service activity as a class. The second day, students reflect on the service they have given, and what it means to follow the CSJ charism of service to the dear neighbor.


Junior Retreat

The junior retreat takes place off campus at Mount St. Mary’s University. It is one day of reflection in which the girls learn more about what it means to be a woman of distinction in the world today.


Senior Retreat

The senior retreat is a three day, overnight retreat at a site chosen by campus ministry. Similar to the Kairos model, the girls deepen their understanding of what it means to be loved, as well as deepening their faith and personal relationship with God.



Youth Day

Every year, campus ministry takes students who are interested in participating in The Archdiocese of Los Angeles Religious Education Congress Youth Day. The theme is chosen by the Archdiocese every year, and students participate in liturgy, and workshops with students from all over the diocese, as well as other cities and countries.
