Remember Your Past to Build Their Future

High school reunions are a time to catch up, reminisce, and see the growth and changes on campus at your alma mater. Remembering the motto ‘AMDG’ and the call to be “Men for Others” speaks to each Jesuit Sacramento alumnus in its own way.

2022 (1972 Golden Diploma)

It was a busy, fun-filled weekend! It started with hosting the class of 1972 back on campus for lunch and a tour, followed by a fun Friday tailgate, Saturday’s family bar-be-que, football game, social, reunion dinner, and a lovely Sunday mass.  It was great to see so many Marauders back on campus in October. Your J-high home is open for your to visit anytime — not just reunion weekend, so we hope to see you back here soon!
