Parental and student involvement is an integral part of a student’s success at Jesuit High School. All families are required to volunteer a total of 25 hours in support of school events or activities during the school year. Hours for the 2018-2019 year begin May 1, 2018 and must be submitted by April 15, 2019 for Senior families and April 30, 2019 for Frosh, Soph and Junior families. This volunteer commitment is for current students, parents, grandparents or siblings (over the age of 18).
Current students may earn up to 10 hours of volunteer service for the family. Due to liability concerns, hours may not be earned by driving students to activities. There is a non-participation fee of $500 for families who do not complete their service hours and the fee is not prorated for partial hours completed. Parents who have chosen monthly tuition payments may have their VIP fee deducted from their account on May 15, 2019. Parents who have chosen an annual or semester payment plan will receive a statement for their VIP fee.
Please note:students are required to participate in Christian Service during each of their years at Jesuit High School. The VIP Program and Christian Service Program exist separately from one another and students are not allowed to submit service at one event for both Christian Service credit and VIP credit. For more information, please visit: www.jesuithighschool.org/post/christian-service-and-vip-program
Signups for both parents and students can be accessed at www.jesuithighschool.org/weekly-volunteer-opportunities. Both parents and students keep track of their own hours on the Volunteer Hours Record Form (link below) and will need the signature of the event chairperson on the form for each volunteer event. Submit the completed form, with the hours totaled, once your required hours are fulfilled.
Read no further if you have already submitted your hours!
The last day to submit your VIP Volunteer hours form is Monday, April 16, 2018.
The option for those families who do not complete and submit their allotted service hours will be to pay a non-participation rate of $500 per year as described in the JHS Student-Parent Handbook. Please note,hours are not prorated. Thank you to all the JHS parents who have shared their time and talents volunteering already this year!
