Periodic retreats and days of reflection are an essential part of Juan Diego Academy’s mission to, “Educate the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.” They provide an opportunity for students and staff to take a “holy pause” from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience more deeply the ever-present God in our midst.
Freshmen and sophomores have a day of reflection each academic year. Juniors and Seniors have the opportunity to partake in a multi-day retreat experience. All of these programs are planned and led by JDA students.
At the beginning of each academic year, Juan Diego Academy staff take time to reflect on the vision and mission of the school and on their vocation as Christian ministers and educators. A day of reflection for faculty and staff is planned each spring based on the current needs/interests of the faculty.
