Central to the mission of WJ is the Graduate at Graduation
. The five core characteristics that make up the Grad at Grad
are: Open to Growth, Intellectual Competence, Religious, Loving & Committed to Doing Justice.
The Companions Program is a cohesive, communal approach to teach, experience, and integrate the Grad at Grad into our students' lives. This 4-year program explicitly creates symmetry between the Grad at Grad and the lives & experiences of our students.
In small groups, we engage the Grad at Grad to explore what it means in our lives, build community and increase the level of cura personalis (care for the whole person).
