Advanced Placement (or AP) classes are college level courses for high school students. The benefits of AP classes are integral to a student’s success in college. Students who take AP classes will be better prepared to tackle college-level curriculum and can earn credit for introductory college courses during high school. As a college preparatory institution, Jesuit High School of Sacramento encourages all students to take advanced placement courses.

Parents and Friends,
This morning our Faculty and Staff explored the transformational power of gratitude with prayer and reflection. We would like to share one of our reflections to send you and your families off on the Thanksgiving holiday. May you return from break rested, restored, and full of love.
A passage from Gratitude by Joyce Rupp:
Greetings from the Campus Ministry Department!
To our Jesuit High School Community:
We take great pride in the fact that our alumni, parents, students, faculty, administration, and Board of Trustees are all committed to our school’s wellbeing. To produce Men for Others who are academically, ethically, spiritually, and morally prepared for college and life’s challenges has always been our mission, consistent with the Catholic Church’s teachings. With every graduating class, our young men make their way to very diverse careers, able to inquire, learn, and discern.
Parents and Friends,
Jesuit High School Sacramento returned to in-person on-campus instruction on October 12, 2020.

CARMICHAEL, Calif. —
Jesuit High School reopened its campus this week. The Sacramento County private school is taking a new step to reduce the risk of the novel coronavirus—requiring onsite COVID-19 testing.
The school is part of a pilot project with local emergency physician Dr. Rusty Oshita and his Urgent Care Now clinic.
Message from the Jesuit High School Leadership,
From the start of the pandemic, Jesuit High School Sacramento has followed the guidance of experts in public health, coordinated with local and state authorities, and committed to a return to campus when it is deemed safe to do so. With the improvement in Sacramento County COVID status to the red tier, Jesuit Sacramento is preparing to begin our phased return to campus. While our remote-learning program has been successful, our students need and want to be on campus; all of us at Jesuit Sacramento have been preparing to reintegrate into in-person learning, but we will only do so in a manner that prioritizes safety, sanity, and sustainability.
For the Jesuit High School Sacramento community, much has changed due to the pandemic. While academics and athletics look notably different, another part of Jesuit that has been forced to make adjustments has been Jesuit Drama. The program has gone from in-person shows and rehearsals in the Black Box theatre to Zoom meetings, and performances over live streams.
Many thanks to Robert Fleming ’07 and Alex Bonilla ’19 for their commitment to our students at Jesuit Sacramento. Bonilla, a former JHS Speech & Debate Team Captain, is now a sophomore and member of the Speech and Debate Society at Cornell University and will be serving as Head Coach of Jesuit’s team this year. All current students will be receiving an email with more information on the team’s interest meeting. The first local competition is slated for September 21.
