What is the Summit?

Each year, we host a school-wide event that focuses on issues of social justice and human dignity. The goal of this program as a whole is to help our students and our school community take a deeper dive into issues of justice that impact our community, through the lens of our Catholic faith tradition. Jesuit’s mission as a whole is to form graduates who are people of competence who are conscientious leaders of compassionate service who work for the greater glory of God in their communities. 

This year, we are offering students the option of choosing to learn about migration justice, environmental justice, criminal justice, and/or indigenous truth and healing. Modeled on professional and academic conferences, student will choose the speakers whose presentations they would like to attend and will make their selections during Collaboration on 2/16/22.


We engage these topics by following the lead of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States and the Society of Jesus across the globe. The Society of Jesus has articulated four Universal Apostolic Preferences that inspire these topic choices. The Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States articulates advocacy priorities. Our topics are drawn from these priorities.
