Journey to Adulthood (8th & 9th Grade)
The Journey to Adulthood (J2A) class helps young people continue their spiritual journey by teaching students independent thinking and how to formulate and answer questions about God and their faith. J2A emphasizes the development of seven skills: listening, assertion, negotiation, research, information management, partnership, and leadership. During the second year of this program, students complete a confirmation curriculum that teaches what it means to become a member of this church and the church universal. In the spring, students may choose to join the United Parish in a special confirmation service. J2A culminates with a special week-long pilgrimage where students explore their spirituality in a destination that they choose together.
