Students will meet and get to know some of the other students who will become their classmates in the fall – starting some of those life-long friendships that they’ll always remember. Students will become more comfortable and ready to start their classes in the fall by getting to know some of their new teachers and expectations as members of the class of 2023. Students will work on organization, proper study habits, and personal accountability. They’ll become familiar with how technology is utilized on campus including how Google Classroom is used to communicate with teachers and how assignments are posted. They’ll review and reinforce important math concepts that they will build on during their career at Jesuit and in college. All of this is geared to make your son’s transition to Jesuit smooth, successful and less stressful. 

This class is open to boys who will be entering Jesuit in the Fall of 2020 as freshmen only.
