College Application Labs & Essay Review Opportunities
Limited capacity, sign-up required for most October labs
If your Senior is looking for additional support while filling out his college applications, encourage him to take advantage of the College Application Labs hosted during the Community Periods below. Counselors will be available to meet with students in the Counseling Center to review various applications, PIQs and personal essays during our Open Labs. We are also offering multiple small group sessions for students needing more guided assistance in completing their Common App, UC or CSU applications. Advanced sign-ups are required for these designated Application Labs as space is limited.
Mark your calendars for these great upcoming events during Community Period.
We’re looking for positive, energetic leaders that want to attract the next generation of Marauders to Jesuit High School. The Jesuit S.T.A.R. Crew is a group of dedicated student ambassadors who are willing to share their Jesuit stories and experiences at events with prospective families.
Do I need a blazer on “Dress Attire” days and does it need to be branded for Jesuit?
No, on Dress Attire days, which are usually for Mass, students do not need to wear a blazer. If you would like to wear a blazer, sport coat, or suit they do not need to be Jesuit branded. (We do not sell any branded sport coats in any of our stores.)
Can students wear shorts for Standard Dress?
Yes. Like the pants, they must be khaki-style or chino-style shorts. No athletic shorts are permitted outside of PE/Athletics. Pants and shorts must be a solid color.
When a high heat advisory has been issued
Jesuit monitors heat carefully throughout the day when temperatures rise. As there are many variables with heat and humidity, we rely on our onsite medical staff and athletic trainers to advise when steps to protect the health and safety of those on the Jesuit Sacramento campus will be necessary.

Learn the Dean's Office expectations of students and escalation of discipline for overdue detentions beginning Nov. 1
When a student receives a detention, aka “JUG”, from a faculty or staff member, it is entered and communicated to students via email. It is a student’s responsibility to check his Jesuit assigned email regularly and to come into the Dean’s Office to discuss the circumstances that led to his referral for JUG. Students will be held accountable for all information communicated in this manner and must follow the instructions given in each email communication.
Dress Code & Personal Appearance Policy
Includes examples and dress policies for standard, casual and dress attire
Jesuit High School believes that student appearance has an impact on attitude and behavior. It is the responsibility of parents to see that their student is properly dressed and groomed for school. Students are expected to adhere to the dress code throughout the school day and they are to be properly groomed at school-sponsored events. Violations will result in detention (JUG). Students found to be in flagrant or repeated violation may be denied entrance into class and/or sent home from school.

Formerly called Staying Connected, this update provides parents, students, faculty, and staff valuable information about happenings at Jesuit High School Sacramento.
We also invite our greater Jesuit Sacramento community to read this newsletter to find out what is happening at 1200 Jacob Lane and to keep in touch with your Marauders.
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.
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.
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.”
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…..”
Understand that the speaker’s experience is valid for
Although an individual’s experience may be different than yours, that doesn’t make it any less
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.
Social media and online presence is a critical piece of Jesuit High School Sacramento’s brand and overall communications outreach to internal and external audiences.

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.
