Our mission and tradition of providing the best Jesuit education possible is challenged each year by rising costs to operate the school – books, supplies, salaries, electricity, gas, etc. – just like the rising costs you face at home and in your business. Continuing in the teachings of St. Ignatius, we do not charge full tuition ~ for any student.
In addition, being a Catholic, private high school, we do not receive State or Federal aid; we also do not receive any funding from the Catholic church or the Society of Jesus.
The Jesuit High School Annual Fund is at the core of our fundraising which covers the shortfall between the full cost to educate our students and the tuition that we charge. In order to succeed, we invite alumni, parents – current & past, faculty, staff and friends to contribute to the Annual Fund.
Every gift makes a difference ~ your gift, large or small ~ supports the day to day operations of Jesuit – from curriculum development, to campus ministry, teacher’s salaries, athletics, christian service, fine arts, student activities, building maintenance and more. Your gift helps keep tuition costs down ~ for all students.
Jesuit High School receives NO State or Federal tax dollars. In addition, we do not receive funds or subsidies from the Catholic Church. Your gift makes the difference each and every day for the young men at Jesuit High School!
Many companies offer matching gift programs – your gift may be matched one, two and sometimes three times by your employer. Please check with your Human Resources department or your company website to see if they offer matching gifts. Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, and IBM are just a few of the many companies that match employee contributions.
