The retreat is scheduled to begin the evening of Tuesday, August 5, and end after lunch on Thursday, August 7 at Camp Abbey in Covington. Students participating in the retreat will be transported to and from Jesuit by school bus.
The St. Francis Borgia Leadership Institute is a student leadership development program sponsored by Jesuit High School designed with the threefold purpose of identifying current and potential student leaders, offering formation in the virtues of leadership, and fostering collaboration among the different organizations, clubs, and teams within the school community. The retreat will focus on developing leadership in the three areas of student life, spiritual life, and the life of service.
Student leaders will participate in activities designed to help them reflect on their ongoing formation in the context of the mission, history, and traditions of Jesuit High School. This time together will also allow collaboration among leaders of various organizations, clubs, and sports teams within the Jesuit community to discover those qualities of leadership that make Jesuit what it is. Participants will hear from several speakers about leadership in the three areas of student life, spiritual life, and the life of service. Finally, leaders will be called to action in implementing what they have learned and experienced in their own lives as well as the school community in the upcoming year.
This retreat developed out of a one day student council leadership workshop started five years ago in concert with the Advancement Office. With the help of Campus Ministry Director Jeremy Reuther and Service Project Director Kevin Murphy, the retreat will offer student leaders time to reflect on their roles at Jesuit High School in the three areas of the student life, spiritual life, and the life of service. The 2014 retreat will focus on the formation of student leaders in three of the major student organizations on campus: Student Council, Campus Ministry, and National Honor Society. Outside of these organizations the retreat was open to all Jesuit students and other invitations were went out based faculty recommendations. A representative group covering nearly every sport, club, and organization on campus will be in attendance.
