Spiritual Life

In addition to daily prayer and study of the Bible, all Judson high school students take part in weekly chapel and character assembly. High School chapels are led by the teachers and students and often feature special speakers, such as visiting missionaries, to share with the students. The high school worship team leads the worship.

Each year the whole school has a week of spiritual emphasis. Special speakers lead daily chapels that focus more directly on the students' own pilgrimage.

In the spring all of our high school students participate in "Serving Our City," a weeklong local missions outreach to Pasadena.
