An interscholastic athletic program as a co-curricular activity is an integral part of the total education and growth experience at a Jesuit high school. Athletics is designed to affirm and promote the Ignatian values as stated in the Profile of the Graduate at Graduation and engage student-athletes fully in mind, body and spirit. Student-athletes, coaches and parents are called upon to work together in a true spirit of sportsmanship to assist in creating an environment in which those Ignatian values can be revealed, tested, and proven relevant both to participants and the entire school community.
Through participation in athletics at a Jesuit high school, students will mature physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. They will learn to take responsibility for personal growth by developing loyalty, pride, integrity and commitment. Athletics provides the opportunity for the student-athlete to exhibit a progression of physical skills and knowledge of a particular sport, enabling him/her to apply these skills and knowledge to new situations an a variety of learning formats. Through participation in athletics, the student-athlete learns that God is active in all things and that individual and liturgical prayer will bring him/her closer to God. The student-athlete comes to trust that he/she is known and loved by God: that love invites a personal response, which is an expression of movement within the human heart beyond self-interest or self-centeredness. The student-athlete is called to be conscious of the call to be a leader in service and to acknowledge his/her active commitment toward fostering a just society. Every member of a Jesuit high school community must seek to encourage, instill and foster such growth and development in all student-athletes.
Jesuit has been blessed to experience many amazing student-athletes over the last fifty years. Likewise, we have had some of the most successful coaches in the country and we have been treated to some of the best volunteers and supporters a school could hope for. The Jesuit High School Athletics Hall of Fame will recognize and honor those who have made a significant impact on the athletic community through their achievement and their service.
Congratulations to the Hall of Fame Class of 2014!

This program is designed to benefit the athletic program at Jesuit High School and the student-athletes who give so much to this program. By purchasing a sign in support of Jesuit Athletics, you will provide the student-athletes with equipment and other resources that the program would otherwise be unable to give them. The sign you purchase will be displayed on days of home athletic contests of the Jesuit team of your choice (baseball, football, rugby, soccer, swim & dive or water polo).
