Jesuit High School offers studio art classes to its students, emphasizing exploration, growth and self expression. An annual exhibition showcases artworks by talented students who draw and paint using various mediums including charcoal, oil and pastels. A number of Jesuit students have exhibited their works locally, while others have received prizes from art competitions.
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.
