At SMA, we're creating opportunities for young women to become leaders in the service of others beyond our local community.

We are now offering Extended Service Experiences (ESE), (formally called mission trips) to junior and senior students.

ESEs will be offered on alternating summers, with juniors in the summer of 2023 and seniors in the summer of 2024.

ESEs are longer than our usual service opportunities. Senior students will participate in an international experience and junior students in a four-day local experience.

ESEs will also include intentional preparation and follow-up, addressing the spirit, mind and body of participants.

Upcoming Extended Service Experiences

Junior Students

Senior Students

In late June and early July of 2024, SMA senior years (grades 9 to 12) students will have the opportunity to travel to Peru for a service experience. While there, the group will visit a SNJM congregation and connect with them and the work that they do. The group will also travel to a mountain community near Sacred Valley and work with the local government to complete a community project with an emphasis on helping the women and children of the community.
