Service & Immersion Trips

St. Xavier students are open to growth and committed to doing justice.

What should students expect while serving on a service & immersion trip?

  • Learn more about issues and challenges families face in urban cities and Appalachia.
  • Build relationships with other students, chaperones, and local community members.
  • Live simply and be away from the constant connection of cell phones and social media.
  • Discover new talents, skills, and ways of thinking while experiencing a new environment.

Service & Immersion Trips are open to current St. Xavier High School Juniors.

Students will select three trips, and should consider their summer schedule and what they are interested in when determining which trips to select. Our goal is for students to be placed on one of their three trip choices.

All trips have been vetted by St. Xavier High School not only for the meaningfulness and value of the experience, but also safety. Many of these organizations have partnered with us for years while some are new. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that every trip will challenge our students in a safe environment.

Financial aid is available.

Students will also participate in daily reflections where they will process their experiences through journaling, prayer and discussion.

Most trips will have ten St. X students and two adult chaperones.
