Good Neighbor Program


Good Neighbor Program

Focus on Good Neighbor Relations

Jesuit High School has been a proud member of the Carmichael community since its founding in 1963. Established at a time when the surrounding areas were pasture lands and fields, Jesuit is now at the center of a thriving residential neighborhood.  In line with our Ignatian tradition, Jesuit continues to be a good neighbor to those who live near us, and this website is an extension of those efforts.

As part of Jesuit’s continued focus on good neighbor relations, the Good Neighbor Program was founded to provide open dialogue with our immediate residential community. The Good Neighbor Program can help with problems you might have with our school community, such as parking, litter, or street congestion. As part of our Good Neighbor Program, we also want you to enjoy all that Jesuit has to offer. We invite you to attend a sporting event, play, Mass or one of our many social events. Please check out our school calendar to see what Jesuit High School has to offer, and learn more.

We hope you will help us spread the word about this web page among your neighbors, too.

President Search Update

The Presidential Search Committee has been convening regularly over the past six weeks, moving through the search process thoughtfully and diligently to find the best President for Jesuit High School. 

In mid-Feburary, the Committee met with various constituent groups during listening sessions and reviewed the results of the confidential online survey at the end of the month to capture input on the ideal candidate for our next President. Applications for the position of President closed on February 28, 2023.

Jesuit High School of Sacramento is pleased to announce that the search for the next President has commenced.

The Jesuit High School of Sacramento Board of Trustees seeks to identify an exceptional leader to serve as its next president. The JHS President Search Committee has developed a comprehensive process and timeline, which includes collecting feedback and perspectives from the JHS community. The Search Committee will then narrow the applicant pool to a group of semifinalists and identify finalists for the position.

Jesuit High School’s current plan is to reopen campus for school Tuesday, January 10, 2023. 

The power is on, and all systems are working. The grounds have been cleared of debris. We will proceed with a four-day week schedule, starting with Period 1 at 8:20am on Tuesday.

School Resumes August 12

Please note that our first day of instruction is August 12. Drop-off and pick-up locations are the same as the 2021-2022 school year—off American River Drive (only on the school side of the street) and in our main campus lot off O’Donnell and Fair Oaks. No student drop-off on Jacob Lane.


Turf Update
Loyola Field Warranty Replacement Underway

After not having use of home turf for the end of the winter soccer season and all of the spring season, we finally have some great news on the warranty replacement – work is beginning this week. AstroTurf will be on-site starting demolition of the top layer and other work over the next 4-5 weeks to complete the project, which will see a new surface and graphic field design.


Jesuit Stadium Lighting Permitting Process Begins
Dark-Sky Certified Lights to Provide Safe Environment for Players and Spectators

To protect players and spectators and make the best use of school facilities, Jesuit High School has applied to the County of Sacramento seeking approval for a Use Permit Amendment to install state-of-the-art lights in the stadium. The need for lighting has become increasingly evident due to the extreme late summer and fall heat, particularly for football, causing stadium conditions that present significant health risks for players, event participants, and spectators.

The proposed lighting technology eliminates light trespass and has been reviewed and certified by the International Dark-Sky Association to respect neighboring residents. Moreover, with an emphasis on moving our home football games to Friday nights, away from competing weekend daytime campus activities, will relieve traffic and reduce parking intrusion into the surrounding neighborhoods.

Dance on Saturday, August 21
Minimal impact on parking, noise expected

Jesuit’s annual back-to-school dance, that was originally to be held in the Barry Gym, has been shifted outdoors because of the recently published public health COVID safety guidelines provided to all schools by the county and state.

Dear Neighbors,

We want to make you aware that there will be a Freshman/Sophomore Dance Saturday, August 21, 2021, from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.


Athletic Events on March 20
May notice an increase in traffic and cars in area

Please be aware that there will be several events occurring from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., on Saturday, March 20, that may impact traffic in the area. Although we are limiting attendance at these events, you may see more cars than typical in the area. We have reminded all visiting schools and teams to be respectful of our neighbors, and we will strategically place signs as a further reminder to park only in designated areas.

We appreciate your patience as we slowly begin the process of returning to a regular athletic competition schedule.


Update on Speaker Relocation
July 8, 2019

Neighbors, We would like to provide an update to the stadium speaker relocation.

The speakers have been removed from the scoreboard within the 60-day time period directed by the County of Sacramento, and the installation of the wooden poles (on which the speakers will reside) is currently underway.  The project is slated for completion by the end of July.
