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 for them to experience life at Jesuit High School.

Our Shadow Day Program runs from October through mid-December. Need a date outside of these months?  Contact Admissions here.

Placement Tests
HSPT and Challenge Exams

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 25 and April 1.

HSPT

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

The 2023 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.​

Financial Aid
Everything You Need to Know about Jesuit's Financial Aid Program

Financial Aid

Financial Aid 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 financial aid in the form of direct family grants. Jesuit’s financial aid program is an annual program and families must reapply each year. Please note that financial aid is restricted to tuition charges only and cannot be applied to fees or other costs.
