|Immaculate Conception Program students at Everest Collegiate Girls' High School|
Clarkston, Michigan –
The enrollment at Everest Collegiate High School in Clarkston, Michigan,
continues to grow each year. This year, the
Girls’ High School had a noteworthy increase from a group
of eighteen young ladies in the Immaculate Conception Program (ICP).
The ICP is
for girls who are deciding if they want to start
a process of discernment to a life of consecration within
the Regnum Christi movement. According to the head
of the program, Margarita Martinez, ICP offers an environment which
allows girls to live their Catholic faith and receive integral
formation, which favors human and spiritual maturity, while receiving their
high school education.
The new students attend Everest Collegiate during the day, participating
in the extracurricular activities of their interest, and live at
the Queen of the Family Retreat Center in Oxford, as
do the female boarding students attending Everest Academy.
Valerie Fifelski, formation instructor at
Everest Collegiate Girls’ High School, said, “This year is off
to a great start. The students and faculty
have been very welcoming to our new students. No doubt
there will be bumps in the road, but isn’t that
true of anything worth doing?”
