The Jesuit High School Diversity program works to foster a community of respect, dignity, and inclusion for students of all backgrounds. Our goal for our students is to gain an appreciation and openness for diversity not only locally, but on a national and international scale as well. JHS promotes respect for all and strives for solidarity within the entire school community. JHS is open to all qualified students from all groups and aims to deepen the educational experience as students of all backgrounds learn to interact effectively with each other.
A large part of Ignatian Spirituality invites us to find God in every circumstance of life, and we challenge each student to view the world with “eyes of faith”. Through education and awareness, JHS provides students the opportunity to honor and understand the diverse world in which we live and work in order to cultivate empathetic, effective leaders and agents of change for the greater glory of God.
