“What kind of man is needed today? A man who is a ‘man for others,’ gifted with conscience, intelligence and power, called out of himself, to give himself to others in love. Only he who loves fully realizes himself as a man.” – Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Former Superior General, Society of Jesus
“The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us.” – Dorothy Day
Jesuit High School is a Roman Catholic college preparatory dedicated to forming competent young men into conscientious leaders in compassionate service to others for the greater glory of God. Through selective, intentional direct service and structured reflection on their action, the Christian Service Program at Jesuit High School seeks to assist in the formation of graduates who embody the profile of a graduate of a Jesuit school at graduation. Namely, students will be: open to growth, intellectually competent, religious, loving, and committed to doing justice.
In line with our mission and graduation requirements, all students at Jesuit High School are required to participate in Christian Service during each of their years at Jesuit High School. Each grade level has its own requirements that are explained in an in-class orientation at the beginning of each school year.
Freshman and Sophomore students are allowed to complete some of their service requirement in on-campus service opportunities that directly benefit Jesuit High School. Such opportunities will be advertised in Google Classroom as they become available.
As part of our curriculum at Jesuit High School, students are required to fulfill Christian Service hours each year. We encourage service to be incorporated into each student’s everyday life. Rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors (after project-specific approval from the Christian Service Office) can all work towards fulfilling their year-long service requirement during the summer preceding the year in question. Students should follow all guidelines explained during the orientations they received in April and May 2018.
