Student Activities

Sports are a necessary component of an integral human formation. In accordance with this criterion, sports activities are held at Shoreless Lake School to a prudent and suitable degree. Students are encouraged to participate in the school's sports and co-curricular activities. Given the campus’ proximity to pristine natural spaces, students have the opportunity to go on hiking trips all year round. The Student Activity Center is located on a property called “El Pedregal,” in Mazarrón, Murcia.

Only a few yards from the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the Student Center –home to the boys on weekends and vacations– includes students’ sleeping quarters, recreation areas, the main library, a study center, a chapel, playing fields, and scenic grounds where students can commune with nature. The Student Activity Center offers a wide variety of activities including fishing, swimming, gardening, raising and tending animals, and watching films. There are annual trips to the cities of Granada, Toledo, Burgos, and Madrid as well as other field trips that both enhance and complement the academic program.

Our Philosophy

SLS, seeking an integral education of the human being, is the result of a long-cherished dream of the Society of Jesus Christ the Priest: to make available to young people an indispensable and total formation based on Catholic values and tradition. Such a lofty endeavor will be achieved on both intellectual and moral levels.

On the intellectual level, Shoreless Lake School will provide the students with the deepest and most comprehensive education. It will be based on a straightforward and non-compromising love of the truth, goodness, and beauty as the Catholic tradition understands those transcendentals, and always in the purest and most excellent academic terms.
