Freshman

Overview

Freshmen

The Freshman Year Service and Justice requirement is minimal, but focused. It is coordinated with the student’s Theology 1 class, and involves a day of in-class preparation, a morning serving in the Sacramento community, and follow-up reflection and orientation to the Service and Justice Program.

For the 2020-2021 School Year, the morning of service will transition to a morning of getting to know local service agencies and the people who use the resources they provide. This will happen via Zoom. The dates will be coordinated with your Theology 1 teacher and communicate through them and Google Classroom.

There is no additional Service and Justice requirement for the Class of 2024 during the 2020-2021 School Year than participation in that in-class programming, but interested students will find additional opportunities in the Freshman Service and Justice page. Any student who completes an additional 12 hours of service and justice programming on his own time and logs it in MobileServe (contact the Office of Service and Justice staff if you’ve not yet received an orientation and would like to set up your account) will be recognized at the end of the school year.

Serving During the Summer

As part of our curriculum at Jesuit High School, students are required to engage in service each year. We encourage service to be incorporated into each student’s everyday life. Rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors (after project-specific approval from the Office of Service and Justice) can all work towards fulfilling their year-long service requirement during the summer preceding the year in question. Students should follow all guidelines explained during the orientations they received in April and May.
