Jesuit students participate in and earn credit through the DOC School. The Doc School is an eight-week documentary production course from award-winning instructors and media professionals. Students learn how to research, shoot and edit a documentary film. They produce a 3-to-5 minute film with their creative team. They debut their film at the Doc School Film Festival. And they prepare themselves for college film, television and media classes. Classes meet at the studios of KVIE Public Television.
As a young musician, I always knew that I’d make an effort to have some involvement with music throughout my high school career. I came into Jesuit as a shy kid that could play piano and read music. On orientation day my freshman year, Mr. Cargile told me that I’d be a percussionist, one of the guys that stand in the back and hit stuff. Getting out of PE already made it worth it to join band, but being in the back of the band, where less people would notice me, sounded even better.
