What’s more exciting to students than Spring Break? How about the week before Spring Break?
At Cornerstone Preparatory Academy, a private school in Acworth, Georgia, students spend all year gearing up for the week before Spring Break, which the school calls“IMPACT Week.”
During IMPACT Week, Cornerstone’s 200 or so high school students can’t be found on campus. Instead, they’re attending 15 different trips— some local, some international— each of which builds comradery and includes a service component.
This year, one group’s mission led them to Ecuador to help at a cystic fibrosis camp. Another group, Video Heroes, took on the mission of filming and editing a video for a local homeless ministry.
