Shadow Day Program
Prospective students walk in the shoes of a Marauder

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 to experience life at Jesuit High School.

Our Shadow Day Program runs from October through mid-December. A few dates may be added at other times. If no appointments are available or you have questions, please contact Admissions here.

Placement Tests
HSPT and Challenge Exams


The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is a standardized test used by all Catholic Schools. 

The 2024 HSPT will be in-person on the Jesuit Sacramento campus. Students will choose their test date during the application process. 

There is a $50 application fee which is due at the time of submission and confirms an applicant’s seat for the test.​

Challenge Tests

Challenge tests allow us to understand a student’s comprehension of a subject before permitting a jump to an accelerated or higher-level course. 

Once your son has been accepted to Jesuit, you may sign-up for one or more challenge tests through the registration process in Final Forms. Challenge tests are available for Math, World Languages, Science and English. Challenge tests will be offered the mornings of March 23 and April 13.
