SCS Minimester - An Adventure of a Lifetime 

The Minimester program at Southwest Christian School exists to offer a wide range of travel, enrichment, and global, national, and local service opportunities for our students. The uncommon and enriching experiences that the SCS Minimester provides further equip our students to become Christian leaders in the world. Past experiences include: building/renovating homes in Honduras and Jamaica, serving orphans in Kenya and in rural South Africa, exploring geology, glaciology, and volcanoes in Iceland, and engaging in masterclass acting workshops on Broadway.

If you are interested in traveling on a school sponsored trip during Minimester, please view the 2020 Minimester Brochure and follow the specific registration procedures for the offering you prefer. Note: If your student plans to travel Internationally for Minimester, his/her passport must be current for six months through October of the next year from the travel date.

In order to secure a spot on any of our trips, a non-refundable $500 deposit must be paid through the portal. Parents are welcome to sign up as well, as long as we have room on the trip. If we end up not having room for parents, the money for parent and student can be refunded or moved to another trip at the parent’s request.

If you have any questions regarding Minimester travel or other Minimester options, please email Mr. Coby Bird.
