10th Grade

Overview-

The Journey leads teens right up to the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation. Our 10th grade year is different from all previous formation classes in that it is aimed at helping teens integrate all of their learning from the Journey’s two previous years into their daily life with their peers.

On Sunday nights, all 10th graders gather in the PLC after the 5pm Teen mass to enjoy dinner together with their small group “family” and to hear one of our speakers present a relevant topic. Then the teens breakout into small groups for discussions and further learning led by our CORE teen mentors and adult volunteers. The themes of weekly speakers and discussions is mandated by the sacramental prep program from the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Teens who attend a Catholic Private School for their high school years must receive the sacrament of Confirmation in their home parish. At St. Benedict, teens who have attended a Catholic private school for 9th grade and are enrolled for 10th grade may join our Journey to Confirmation program in the 10th grade.

At St. Benedict, we believe that Confirmation formation should include fellowship along with the topics required. Therefore, our students who attend Catholic Private schools are required to attend Sunday night class a minimum of 8 times during the year. Teens may choose which 8 nights they want to attend.

In addition to all of the 10th grade assignments, Catholic Private School students need to submit the Sponsor Verification Form and their Saint Report, which were completed by the other students in 9th grade.    See Confirmation Checklist-10th grade (Catholic Private School) for details.
