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.
All parents are invited to attend our annual Back to School Night from 6:30-9:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 7. The evening begins with a general assembly in the gymnasium followed by a shortened seven-period schedule where you will have the opportunity to meet each of your son’s teachers in their classrooms. Please plan to carpool with other parents, 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).
