Junior Journey is a three week adventure in Antigua, Guatemala that integrates Spanish language instruction, cultural immersion, and community service learning. The program combines four hours of daily one-on-one Spanish language instruction, home stays with local families, and community service learning in an environment where each student can have a long-lasting impact on the people they serve. This life-changing experience provides our students with the opportunity to broaden their horizons, gain greater independence, and develop stronger self-confidence as they prepare for their transition to college. Prospect Hill Academy Charter School is committed to raising the funds to cover the costs for Junior Journey to ensure all eligible juniors have the opportunity to participate, regardless of their families’ financial situation. The cost per student is $1,800 and approximately 30 students participate annually.
While in Guatemala, students are able to communicate with their families and the PHA community by recording their experiences in a blog. The blog provides an unedited, uncensored insight into the students’ experience abroad.
