A hallmark of the high school experience.
Since 2000, WCHS has partnered with S.C.O.R.E. International to offer a Senior Capstone trip to the Dominican Republic. Often a life-changing experience for seniors preparing for the next stage of life, WCHS’ Senior Capstone is designed:
- To expose students to a cross-cultural experience in an economically-challenged area of the world;
- To provide the opportunity for students to serve others; and
- To make lifetime memories with classmates.
“It wasn’t until after we left the village that I began to realize that we had given them the greatest gift in the world. But it wasn’t our time, or our exhausted shoulders, or even a bag full of airplanes. We had given them the boundless and unfathomable love of Christ and the incredible joy which that brings, and I am overjoyed to have had the opportunity to join with God for this short week in being His arms to just one more small village for one more short day. I can only hope that the rest of my life can continue this ministry to one more village at a time.” Jonnie Barlow (WCS ’12)
