8th Grade Happenings…
Retreats: 8th graders participate in three retreats throughout the year: a challenge retreat annually in September, a midyear reflection retreat in January, and an overnight final reflective retreat in May.
High School: 8th graders spend much of the fall researching and visiting high schools. For local Catholic high schools, applications are due in January, and acceptance information is available in mid-February.
Graduation: 8th graders finish classes in late May. Graduation festivities include the Farewell Assembly and faculty-student basketball game, a formal breakfast with parents, the graduation Mass and a final dance.
