Jesuit High School Educational Philosophy Statement
“The educational philosophy of Jesuit High School is Catholic and, therefore it is based on a faith response to the Gospel of Jesus Christ; it is Jesuit and, therefore it is formed by Ignatius of Loyola’s vision of Christ and the world. The school’s purpose is to lovingly serve the young men of the wider Sacramento area, from every ethnic and socio-economic background and a broad spectrum of academic achievement. Our role, in support of parents as primary educators, is to help our students realize the fullness of their spiritual, intellectual, artistic, physical, and social potential. The spiritual dimension of the students development is fostered through their incorporation into a community where Catholic beliefs, morals and values, inspired by faith in the Gospel and a belief in the full brotherhood / sisterhood of the human family, are taught, professed and experienced, and where personal action is proposed as a response.
Fostering a community of respect, dignity, and inclusion for students of all backgrounds.
The Jesuit High School Office of Equity and Inclusion works to foster a community of respect, dignity, and inclusion for students of all backgrounds. JHS is open to all qualified students from all groups and aims to deepen the educational experience as students of all backgrounds learn to interact effectively with each other.
