International Travel and Service

Service in the U.S. and Abroad

Service Immersion Trip to Zambia: Select rising seniors travel to Zambia to visit sister Dominican school, Our Lady of Fatima. During their two-week visit, our students immerse themselves in the community by attending classes during the day, and assisting doctors and nurses with fieldwork in the surrounding areas. This presents an invaluable opportunity for our students to engage in service and solidarity with other Dominican girls half a world away.
