Compass seeks to help young women in the 7th-8th grades develop a life compass, one that orients their minds toward truth, their hearts toward authentic friendship, and their hands toward service, guiding them in the great adventure of life! 

The Compass motto is "Find Your Way," and the talks and activities of the club aim to help participants acquire the virtues necessary to joyfully and successfully navigate the middle school years and beyond.  By building on the foundation laid in girls' clubs, Compass calls the girls to a more mature understanding of what it means to live lives of leadership and service in today's world.


Update: At this time, Compass is full and will no longer be accepting more students for the 2023-24 school year.  Thank you for your interest!
