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.
I entered Jesuit thinking that I was going to play rugby and soccer all four years, and have a simple, pleasurable experience. It wasn’t until I was signing up for classes before my freshman year that I even thought about choir. The class was called Men’s Chorus, I signed up, and it was a spontaneous decision that I will never regret. I had never had any experience in choir before, but it became my favorite class and Ms. Heine became my favorite teacher. At the freshman year Christmas concert I had a solo.
