Jesuit High School is a fully-accredited, independent, college preparatory, Jesuit, Catholic, private high school that serves the greater Sacramento area by continuing the long tradition of Jesuit education aimed at educating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. With parents as our partners, we offer a challenging educational experience of academic excellence, co-curricular involvement, and spiritual and religious formation.
At Jesuit, opportunities abound for a student to explore his interests and develop his talents. It’s a place where students say they are known and cared for by our committed faculty and by their fellow students. In addition to the dedicated lay men and women on our faculty and staff, our students also benefit from the presence on campus of 14 Jesuit priests and seminarians. For all, education is more than a vocation. It is a mission.
Besides preparing students well for college, a Jesuit High School education prepares today’s students to become tomorrow’s leaders – men of competence, conscience and compassion. Our goal is to help them become “Men for Others” who seek to make the world a better place.
Supporting young men as they grow and develop has been the work of the entire Jesuit High School community since 1963. Here, students and parents work in community with educators, administrators, alumni, benefactors and the Jesuit community.
Come visit us and see why the educational tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, is more compelling – and important – than ever.
If you have not already purchased your second semester books, they need to be ordered now to arrive for second semester classes in January. Click here for the textbook list.
The following classes are typically those that are one-semester long and may require a book. Please check the textbook list to make sure your son has everything required. PE gear can be purchased from the PE teacher at the beginning of the semester.
It’s hard to believe, but the first quarter of the academic school year has ended.
Access to Grades: Quarter grades will only be communicated in an electronic format through PowerSchool. If you have not already done so, parents should refer to instructions emailed out on August 17th to gain access to grades. If you cannot retrieve that email and need assistance, please contact Margie Wagner at Margie.email@example.com.
All parents are invited to attend our annual Back to School Night from 6:30-9:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 7. . Upon arrival, you should report directly to your son’s Period 1 class. We will begin promptly at 6:40 p.m. To avoid long lines in the Harris Center, please print a copy of the email sent on September 5 with your son’s schedule and the attached campus map to bring with you that evening. If you are unable to print your son’s schedule, we will have copies in the Harris Center. Carpooling with other parents is strongly encouraged, since parking is a major challenge for this event.
If you were unable to attend the AP Parent Information Night, we have provided links to the presentation. If your son has any additional questions regarding any class placements, please have him contact his counselor or his current subject teacher.
It’s hard to believe but the end of the first quarter of the academic school year is just around the corner. This email is to remind you of some important upcoming tasks, dates, and times for you and your son so you are not caught by surprise.
Most Wednesdays begin with a “Collaboration Period” which run from 8:15-9:30 a.m. Some Collaboration Periods are used for faculty and some are used for students.
Collaboration Periods for faculty include things like Professional Learning Community meetings and additional department meeting time (for things like year-level meetings or interdepartmental collaboration).
