The role of the parent in the education of a student is vital. The support shown in the home is often manifested in the ability of the student to accept the opportunities presented at school and in life. There is a value system – established in the home, nurtured in the school – which young people are developing. Their involvement in classroom and other activities contributes to that development. Jesuit High School recognizes the partnership we have with parents as the primary educators of their children.
Each family is required to volunteer a total of 20 hours in support of Jesuit High School events or activities during the school year. Click here for more info regarding the Volunteers-In-Partnership (VIP) Program.
Established in 1955, the Loyola Guild is a non-profit corporation of Jesuit parents and friends which fosters the educational and social needs of the high school community. The Loyola Guild and Booster Club kick off the year with the “Welcome to the Spirit of Jesuit” Parent Party. The Guild sponsors annual events which include New Parent Orientation Coffee, Mother-Son Dance, Logo Wear Sales and Christmas Tree Lane, with profits going towards Jesuit’s scholarship endowment. In addition, this active group supports many of the school-sponsored events such as Freshman Retreat, Mother-Son & Father-Son Masses, and Baccalaureate Mass to name a few. Volunteer opportunities are plentiful – this is a great way for parents to get involved and stay involved even after graduation!
The Boosters Club is an active organization of men and women who are current parents, alumni, alumni parents and friends of Jesuit High School. The Boosters provide volunteer help to staff student activities, including sporting events and the visual and performing arts performances, and host seasonal athletic banquets. They sponsor a series of social and fund-raising events throughout the year to provide additional support to the school, including “Welcome to the Spirit of Jesuit,” Annual Crab Feed and the Vehicle Donation Program.
