PSIP, Philadelphia Service Immersion Program, is a four day optional early move-in experience. Students participate in community service, explore historic and cultural destinations in the Philadelphia area, and foster a community amongst your peers rooted in the Jesuit mission of being with and for others. 

Its goal is to introduce incoming freshmen, and now sophomores, immediately and intensely to our Jesuit values of social justice, service to those on the margin, moral discernment, and intellectual inquiry. The program is very holistic in design, including intellectual, service, and cultural components.


Dates for PSIP 2021 are Tuesday, August 17th through Saturday, August 21st, 2021.The fee for PSIP is $180, payable after you are notified of acceptance to the program. Financial aid is available; no one will be excluded because of financial need.

Participant applications will be available on April 10th, 2021 and will close July 2nd, 2021. Students will be notified of acceptance in late July.
