Junior Kairos
Kairos 150 will be rescheduled. Watch for updates.


KAIROS means “the Lord’s Time.” Juniors who attend this retreat have the opportunity to integrate their high school experiences within their own spirituality and values. Retreatants are challenged to find God in themselves and the faces of all those around them. There are five Kairos retreats each year: four for Seniors and this last one being for Juniors. This retreat is led by faculty and Senior students who have made a KAIROS retreat.

I am a Junior, why should I go on Kairos?

Kairos is your time to be with yourself, God, and peers for three nights and four days at the Jesuit Retreat Center of the Sierras in Applegate, California.

  • Kairos is one way in which the Spirit works to unify the class, as you can tell by those who attended Kairos from the Class of 2020 through your shared experience of faith and community.
  • Kairos is not mandatory – we hope you will choose to attend.  There is no fee to attend Kairos.
  • Kairos is not a retreat where Catholicism is pushed or conversion is sought.  All we ask is that you are open and honest with yourself, others, and the workings of God on the retreat.
  • As with all retreats, Kairos is an excused absence.
  • Students who attend Kairos at the end of the Junior year will be eligible to apply to lead one of the Senior Kairos retreats early next year.  (Kairos leadership is not required, nor guaranteed as a result of attending Junior Kairos.)  

How do I apply to go on Kairos? 

Applications for Kairos 150 were accepted prior to campus closing. Students on the roster will have priority once the new date is determined.
