Service Immersion Experience
At Holy Ghost Prep, commitment to service, concern for the poor, and a global vision aren’t just lines in our Spiritan charism; they are woven into the school’s DNA.
Whether it’s staying among the people of Tanzania or the Dominican Republic, caring for the homeless in Philadelphia and Trenton, taking on small construction projects each year in West Virginia, or simply visiting our own elderly neighbors, HGP challenges its students to see themselves as servant leaders who respond to the needs of others with compassion.
Every student at Holy Ghost Prep will graduate having participated in a multi-day service immersion program. Some of these will be local, some international, and some, like Finding Your Dream in Pittsburgh, will be an integral part of the experience of playing ice hockey at HGP.
Finding Your Dream in Pittsburgh
Lead Teachers: Mr. Abramson, Mr. Profy & Mr. Whiteside
