Jesuit Sacramento understands the uncertainty of doing a weekly screening and the many details this program involves, along with the strict virus mitigation practices while on campus, mean that some families will choose to remain in distance learning. We respect and understand this decision. We also know that distance learning for some students and their families has been very difficult and a return to campus, even for two days a week, will be a major benefit academically and for their overall wellness. As we work through these logistics and experience our phased return to school, we realize some families may choose to return to distance learning and others may decide later to attend in person. Students may exercise this freedom if they have completed their initial screening and training.
“‘Love ought to show itself in deeds more than in words.’
These powerful words from St. Ignatius of Loyola remind us that casting a ballot can be an act of love—a way to live out the greatest commandments, to love and serve God and to love our neighbor. This fall, exercise the right and responsibility to vote for candidates and issues that support the common good and concern for the most vulnerable people in our society” (Ignatian Solidarity Network).

Please note: form access is limited to Jesuit students with school gmail account
Plans for a Jesuit High School Summer Internship Program are in the works, but a unique virtual internship opportunity has recently come our way and we are excited to open up the application process to current juniors and seniors. Getting real-life work experience, building one’s professional network, and developing a more competitive college application are just a few of the benefits of an internship. TeachAids, a health education non-profit collaborating with Stanford University, USA Football, and the US Olympic Committee, has a unique opportunity for two Jesuit juniors or seni
Flex Periods/PE for All
Exercise and Workouts to Keep our Students Physically and Mentally Healthy
PE Classroom code and rehab appointments
While we are in distance learning, students do not need to check in via zoom during their flex period(s). Instead, we invite all students to take advantage of our “PE For All” programming during Flex Periods to get some exercise instead of continuing to be plugged into a device.

In light of how difficult it is for students to find available test sites in California for the SAT and ACT, Jesuit is pleased to offer the opportunity for testing on our campus exclusively for our JHS students.
We have worked to provide a streamlined approach in directing you to online merchants from whom you may purchase your course materials. Rather than shopping around online at multiple merchant sites one by one, this link allows you to obtain the same results with just a few simple clicks. It eliminates the need to copy and paste multiple ISBNs over and over again into individual merchant sites in order to find the best deal.

Students will get insight into what kind of athlete they are and learn how to translate that into success on the field, court and in the pool. To start this process, students just need to fill out a very brief form to indicate interest in this customized athletic assessment. After completing the two-minute survey, stude

Given the current need for social distancing, many people are experiencing isolation in new, deeper ways. For people who were already isolated, this social distancing can be especially painful.
To respond to this reality, we will be inviting our students to engage in an optional service opportunity by writing a letter to a client or resident (or multiple clients or residents) at one of several non-profit agencies and programs.
We invite our parents, alumni, and our greater Jesuit community to join us in prayer and reflection.
Please join Donovan Jasper ’21 and Carlo Pedroncelli ’21 in a few of our video morning prayers.
In response to the current school closure, the Jesuit Sports Performance Team is committed to providing guidance and support not only to our students-athletes, but the entire school community while campus is closed. Physical and mental well-being is not something to be taken for granted, therefore we will continue to reference the current research and employ standard practices to provide the very best health advice. All current research supports this balanced, minimalistic protocol for promoting comprehensive wellness and basic human performance.
These guidelines suggest best practices regarding the publication of commentary on social media by students.

Help students establish meaningful post-secondary goals and connect those goals with their coursework and college planning activities.
As you head into finals week next week remember that while it is important to strive for your best on your exams, your health and well-being is even more important. As the posters around campus highlight from the Impact Distracted Driving campaign: Instincts Matter. Instincts matter when you are driving, and instincts matter in our everyday experiences with ourselves and others. Pause, assess, and if necessary Speak Up.
Here are some common letters of recommendation questions that we get from students during the college application cycle. This is the same information that we communicated to students and parents in our college information nights, college advising meetings, and during collaboration periods. We thought it may be useful to have this information in a cohesive and easily accessible document for your reference.
