Shadow Day Program

If your son attends a Catholic or private school that receives an admissions visit, a shadow day has already been scheduled for your son.

Jesuit’s Shadow Day Program is a terrific way for 8th, 9th or 10th-grade students to experience what it is like to be a Jesuit student. While shadowing is not a mandatory part of the application process, applicants continually report that the shadow visit provides the best opportunity for them to experience life at Jesuit High School.


Neighborhood Dinners
Super-charged Visitation Day With Food

Missed Open House? Questions about the admissions process? What is the HSPT? Is Jesuit the right fit?

The Jesuit High School Neighborhood Dinner will provide our prospective 7th and 8th-grade families with another chance to join us on campus to answer any questions about Jesuit High School. 

This is not a mandatory event and does not have any bearing on our admissions process. The event is for prospective 7th and 8th-grade families only and will include a wonderful dinner.


Jesuit’s Tuition Assistance Program
Everything You Need to Know about Financial Aid

Jesuit’s Tuition Assistance Program

Tuition assistance is available to students with a demonstrated financial need and has no bearing on admission. We base tuition aid awards on need, not on merit. We do not offer academic or athletic scholarships. Through the generosity of our benefactors, we have an established scholarship endowment fund which provides tuition assistance in the form of direct family grants. Jesuit’s tuition assistance program is an annual program and families must reapply each year. Please note that tuition assistance is restricted to tuition charges only and cannot be applied to fees or other costs.


Placement Testing

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is a standardized test used by all Catholic Schools. The good news? If you are applying to another Catholic high school (such as Christian Brothers) you only need to take the test once and request to share your results. If you need testing accommodations, please contact the Admissions office prior to the test.

The PreHSPT is a practice version of this test for 7th graders.
