Letters from the President

President's Letter Rev. John P. McGarry, S.J. Michael Wood ’99

Navigating our world together, rooted in our Catholic Jesuit tradition

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.

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.

Message from the President and Principal
Reaffirm its commitment to addressing racism in our community

A pre-note from Fr. McGarry, S.J.:

As you know, I have been away from campus for five weeks to receive medical treatment for a heart arrhythmia. I responded well to the treatment and time of rest, and I am happy to be returning to Jesuit High School Sacramento this weekend to resume my ministry as President.  

Thank you for your prayers and support during my time of recuperation. The Jesuit High School community remained in my heart and prayers while I was away.

An Easter blessing for joy and comfort

An Easter blessing for joy and comfort

Blessings of hope, peace, joy and comfort to all of you on this Easter morning!

Though our campus is closed for the remainder of the academic year, our school continues online in a very vibrant and engaging way.  

I am heartened on this feast of Easter by the generosity and unwavering support of our entire Jesuit community.

Just as our Lenten journey coincided with our coronavirus journey, so too must our Easter celebration urge us on to new life and new hope that we will rise from this current health emergency in our country.

President's Letter

The Season of Lent
We invite you to "Learn, Pray and Grow."

“Now is the acceptable time, now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians, 6:2

During the season of Lent, we are invited by the Church to pray, fast and give alms. In so doing, we are challenged to deepen our faith commitment. Jesuit High School is pleased to provide opportunities to “Learn, Pray and Grow” during Lent.

We begin this Wednesday, February 26, with Ash Wednesday services in the Chapel of the North American Martyrs:

Deepen & Strengthen Your Faith
An Invitation to Three Educational Events

Dear Parents, Alumni, Alumni Parents, Benefactors, and Friends of Jesuit High School:

Have you ever wanted to hear the presentations from guest speakers on campus who engage with our students? Or wondered what programming is included in our Religious Core for students?

To answer those questions, we are now expanding our spiritual outreach to you—parents, alumni, alumni parents, benefactors, local parishioners, and other friends of Jesuit High School. Think of it as “spiritual adult continuing education.”

A Thanksgiving Blessing to You and Yours

Dear Parents, Alumni, Alumni Parents, Benefactors, and Friends of Jesuit High School:

As we approach Thanksgiving, I am reminded of this Thanksgiving Prayer by W.E.B. Dubois.  It is his take on Psalm 100:
