upretreat 8

During the last weekend in October, the senior class of 111 students from University Prep Value High School experienced the Virtus Arete Senior Retreat in Big Bear, California.

Started at Central City Value High School in 2007, the four-day retreat was originally modeled after the Catholic youth program entitled Kairos. Value Schools secularized major components of the retreat and now provides a sustained and focused experience for students, faculty and staff.

Since its inception, every graduating senior from Value Schools can participate in this unique, four-day experience. Now poised with its first graduating senior class, University Prep Value High School joins other Value Schools alumni in the pantheon of students that have come before.

Grounded and framed by the five values, the designed exercises help students reflect on their lives by examining their choices, their relationships, and their self-perceptions. The students contemplate their personal and educational prospects, and imagine how the values can be used to accomplish greater goals.
