Ever to Excel 2020
Session I: July 26 – 31, 2020
Session II: August 2 – 7, 2020

*Update: May 15, 2020

Due to the continuing threat of the coronavirus and various health and safety restrictions, it is clear that Ever to Excel cannot take place as scheduled. Ever to Excel is focusing on 25-30 July and 1-6 August 2021 for the sessions next year. We will confirm these dates early in the new year.

Though our 2020 program will be deferred for a year, our intent is to continue to offer a magnificent experience of Spiritual Exercises to high school students from around the world--under the guidance of undergraduate students from Boston College who serve as Mentors. We look forward to an amazing Ever to Excel program in 2021.


Ever to Excel transforms students from around the world. Participants share experiences, reflect, make Spiritual Exercises, engage in small group discussions, and conclude each night in Candlelight.

Our undergraduate student Mentors share a desire to contribute to the lives of the students they encounter and guide them on their journey to discover God in all things.

Ever to Excel introduces participants to some of Boston College’s best community members. Students will discover the power of the Spiritual Exercises which promote faith, service, and community -- all while nurturing future desires and virtues.

The program for Session One begins with check-in from 2 - 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 26th and concludes following lunch on Friday, July 31st. 

Session Two begins with check-in from 2 - 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 2nd and concludes following lunch on Friday, August 7th.
