Frequently Asked Questions
What virus mitigation protocols will be in place to keep my student safe?
Jesuit has been a leader in the safe return to school since fall 2020. Following an approved Safe Return Plan, under the guidelines set forth by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and County of Sacramento, Jesuit maintains stringent virus mitigation to return to the classroom in a manner that is both safe for students, as well as faculty and staff. The goal for summer programs is to continue our safety protocols while achieving as much normalcy as possible. Jesuit will continue to be nimble and flexible, responding to any and all modifications in order to adhere to COVID guidelines. Jesuit will also maintain fluid communication with participants to keep everyone updated on adjustments and modifications.
Jesuit will continue to follow virus mitigation and safety protocols throughout the summer. Measures that will be taken include: daily symptom checks, mandate masks be worn on campus, facilitate space to maintain six feet of physical distance, ensure ventilated classrooms, offer outdoor dining and non-class time space, as well as respond professionally and promptly to any cases that arise. Your student’s safety is paramount to Jesuit faculty and staff and we will be working continuously to do what is necessary to keep everyone safe and healthy.

During the school year, Jesuit students were screened for COVID-19 at regular intervals in order to learn in-person on campus. Will Jesuit continue its rapid-antigen screening program for in-person activities during the summer?
No. At this point we anticipate students being able to attend classes and summer programs on campus in a safe manner by implementing physical distancing, sanitation, mask-wearing and symptom checks.
We’re excited about having our son/daughter participate in a camp on campus! What happens if Sacramento County is placed in a “Stay at Home Order”?
If a camp or class cannot be transitioned to an online format, the camp or class will be cancelled. In this scenario, families will be contacted via email. Students who are registered for a camp or class that has not begun will be offered a full refund. Students who are registered for a camp or class that is in-progress will be offered a pro-rated refund. The refund would be calculated based on the number of days of participation prior to the start of the “Stay at Home Order.”
With all of the “protocols” in place, is my son/daughter going to have any fun at camp?
Of Course! Protocols will need to be followed and check-in and out may be a bit more laborious than normal, but once the camp starts we plan to be as normal and fun as possible. Our camps are led by our highly qualified coaching staff and teachers, and assisted by our current athletes and students, who can make anything fun, as well as provide a strong example of what it means to be a Jesuit student.
Are parents allowed to stay and watch a sports camp?
No. Currently Jesuit High School is trying to minimize exposures. As we get closer to the start of camp, if we are able to modify this arrangement, families will be updated.
Are temperature screenings a mandatory requirement before entering camp?
UPDATED 5/5/21: No, temperature checks will not be required. Jesuit will continue to follow virus mitigation and safety protocols throughout the summer. Measures that will be taken include: daily symptom checks, mandate masks be worn on campus, facilitate space to maintain six feet of physical distance, ensure ventilated classrooms, offer outdoor dining and non-class time space, as well as respond professionally and promptly to any cases that arise. Your student’s safety is paramount to Jesuit faculty and staff and we will be working continuously to do what is necessary to keep everyone safe and healthy.

My student needs to miss one day of camp—can my camp fee be pro-rated?
No. Camp fees cannot be pro-rated. Please let the coach or camp leader know about the absence on the first day of camp.
What is the cancellation policy?
Prior to the start of camp – 100% refundable
After camp begins – refunds are given at the discretion of the Director of Summer Programs.

How do I register for camp?
Please visit our Summer registration portal
How do I know if there is still room in a camp?
Please visit our registration site at www.summeratjesuit.com. If a camp appears as an option for registration, then there is still room available. If a camp shows that it is closed and taking a waiting list, then the camp has reached capacity. Sports Camps and Academy Camps have a one-time fee which should be paid by credit card at the time of registration.
What if I purchased a certificate at my elementary school’s auction? How do I use the certificate?
There was a letter attached to the certificate that includes a coupon code. Visit our registration site and when prompted on the payment page and enter the coupon code.
What if I have already registered and I want to make changes to the camps that my student is registered for? Can I make changes online?
No. If you need to change or cancel a camp, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll contact you.
Is financial aid available?
Unfortunately, financial aid is not available for Sports Camps and Academy Camps. Financial aid is available for Academics Plus. Please complete the application online on our registration portal.
My student is participating in a camp in the morning and a camp in the afternoon. Can they stay on campus between camps? Is there adult supervision?
The student is welcome to stay on campus but there is no adult supervision between camps. Students will need to make their own way to the next activity.
Is the library open over the summer? Can my student stay after class to study or wait for a ride?
The library is not open over the summer. Students are welcome to stay on campus but there is no indoor area open and no adult supervision. The campus is open and students are welcome to take advantage of our beautiful campus including picnic tables and outdoor benches.
