Order info

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.

All of our ebooks can now be accessed by any device operating system (windows, iOS, or Mac) via the internet.

PLEASE NOTE:  When you are working on the textbooks page, please do not use the “back” button on your browser.  This creates an error where the system does not perform as expected and you will see the same books you just looked at.  If you need to go back, there is a “Go Back” button on the page (under the Jesuit Logo Shield) that will take you to the correct location.  This is a known problem with the developer and they are working on a solution.

Order textbooks for 2021-2022 school year

Please note:  Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 books are not yet available.  Please return to this page after August 1st to order your ebook.

For all current policies regarding the textbooks please refer the section on Textbooks/Ebooks in your Student Parent Handbook and any direct communications from the school.

Closed Campus
Jesuit High School remains a closed campus during the course of the school day

It is our expectation that students will not switch from on-campus learning to distance learning (or vice versa) during the course of the day without a parent notifying the Dean’s Office. Any student who needs to leave campus early or arrive on campus late for any reason should have a parent/guardian leave a message for the Dean’s Office through the attendance line. This communication is critical for the Dean’s Office to maintain accurate attendance records for all students that are present on campus.

7 Principles of Constructive Dialogue
Framework for respectful conversations for our community

Taken from the updated Faculty Handbook (Appendix E-7 Principles of Constructive Dialogue)

To guide our conversations, all members of our community will commit to following the 7 Principles of Constructive Dialogue. These Principles will provide the framework for respectful conversations so we may all learn and grow from each other’s insights and perspectives.

  1. Presume good intentions
    If someone says something you disagree with or which you don’t understand, assume that the person has good intent. Ask questions and seek first to clarify, not to disregard the comment. St. Ignatius of Loyola reminds us that we should be “more ready to put a good interpretation on another’s statement than to condemn it as false.”
  2. Use “I” statements
    Your experience is true for you, but it may not be universal. Speak about your experiences and things that are true for you. Use statements that begin with “I think that…,” “I feel….,” or “It seems to me….” Avoid statements that begin with “You know how you…..,” “We all believe….,” or “Everyone knows…..” 
  3. Understand that the speaker’s experience is valid for him/her
    Although an individual’s experience may be different than yours, that doesn’t make it any less

Academic, College, and Wellness Counseling

Wellness

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.
