Jesuit High School is committed to helping young men achieve their potential academically, athletically, socially and spiritually. In order to achieve this goal, Jesuit believes a disciplined and structured atmosphere is necessary. The purpose of discipline, then, is to maintain an environment where students can achieve their potential in an honest and caring manner. Our goal is that these students grow to become “men for others.”
Any student who freely approaches a counselor, administrator, teacher, coach, or other staff member for help regarding a drug/alcohol problem (not influenced by prior knowledge of an offense) will be assisted in the spirit of counseling. The same will be true for students referred to any staff member by friends for intervention. These cases will not be considered as disciplinary matters and will be referred to a counselor.
When a family enrolls their son at Jesuit, it is expected that they are committed to and supportive of our disciplinary philosophy. Only with the support and cooperation of both the student and his parent(s) can a young man fully benefit from a Jesuit education. The following is a summary of our disciplinary actions.
