50th Anniversary

Overview

50 Years of Jesuit Tradition

A notable school does not just appear. It is brought into being by great desires. Often sustained through sacrifice. And valued. Because what happens there, should happen everywhere, but all too often does not.

It is built by exceptional teachers and coaches and nourished by the prayers of many.

It is nurtured by words of comfort as well as challenge. By pep rallies and rehearsals. Experiments and novels. Retreats. Liturgies. Service to others. And in doing, it becomes more and more that place imagined long ago.

Jesuit High School. Since 1963.

General Information

The History of Jesuit High School

A Jesuit High School for the Sacramento area had been initially envisioned by the late Bishop Robert Armstrong. It was his successor, Bishop Joseph McGucken who invited the Jesuits of the California Province to begin the project. In January of 1961, the Society of Jesus purchased twenty-one acres of the Horst Ranch property which was to be used for the new school campus.

The Story of St. Ignatius

Nearly 475 years ago, St. Ignatius of Loyola founded the Society of Jesus, a community of Jesuit priests. He dedicated his life and the work of the Jesuits to Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, “For the Greater Glory of God”. This dedication and vision of St. Ignatius continues to live on today in the students and community at Jesuit High School.
