Service Immersion Trips
The school’s newest signature program, the Spiritan exchange program with Blackrock College, Dublin, Ireland.
Holy Ghost Prep sophomores travel to Dublin’s Blackrock College just after Christmas and then host Blackrock students in the spring in this unique Spiritan exchange program.
Holy Ghost Prep successfully launched the school’s newest signature program, the Spiritan exchange program with Blackrock College, one of HGP’s “brother” schools in Dublin during the 2021-22 school year. First, a group of HGP students, along with faculty moderators James Hoban, Trish O’Connor and Tom Croskey, flies from Philadelphia to Dublin in January.
As the second half of the Spiritan exchange program, students and a couple teachers from Blackrock College travel from Ireland to visit Holy Ghost Prep in the spring. In April of 2022, the Blackrock contingent took part in classes, attended a Phillies game, and also enjoyed educational trips to Philadelphia and New York City before flying back to Dublin.
