Overview

Summer High School
Co-Ed, grades 9-12—multi-week summer school classes

Register for Summer Now

Jesuit Sacramento is offering in-person summer school courses on our campus. Courses will offer high school students the opportunity to take credit courses (where the grade is listed on the student’s transcript) and enrichment courses. 

Registration for high school level classes will close on Friday, May 27th at 5:00p.

All courses meet Monday through Friday (excluding June 20th and July 4th for observed holidays.)

High school level courses are offered in academic subjects for female and male students entering grades 9-12. 

Pre-requisites, attendance

All courses meet the same standards and cover the same material as the regular school year courses. Credit courses meet U.C. “a-g” requirements.

You are strongly advised to review any course pre-requisites and consult with your child’s academic counselor to ensure that your student is ready and qualified to take the course that you have requested. It is also your sole responsibility to be sure that your child’s school will accept credit for this course. Daily attendance in class for credit classes is mandatory. Our attendance policy allows for 1 absence during each semester (one absence between 6/8/22 and 6/24/22 and one absence between 6/27/22 and 7/15/22.) If a student misses more than 1 day of class per semester, credit cannot be granted for the course. 

Incoming Freshmen

Incoming Freshmen are only allowed to take credit courses after a careful review of the individual candidate’s academic performance, recommendations and test scores. Please contact Matthew Ramos, Director of Admissions at matthew.ramos@jesuithighschool.org for information.

The Marauder Seminar
Get oriented to campus, meet your classmates, brush up on subjects, and get a jump start to being ready for high school.

June 13 – July 1: 8:00 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. 

Marauder Seminar is here for our Class of 2026!

Our hope is to acclimate the incoming freshman to Jesuit academics and culture and get them comfortable on campus. Students will be introduced to academic methods, technology, and content that will help prepare them for their journey at Jesuit High School. They will begin their summer reading assignment, meet new friends and start the new year poised for success.

Pre-Calculus

June 8 – July 15: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. 

This 6-week course prepares students for Calculus by introducing and reinforcing algebraic skills required for success in that course. The first three weeks will focus on simplifying expressions, solving equations and inequalities, functions, graphing, transformations, higher degree polynomial functions, and inverse functions. The last three weeks will focus on transcendental functions (exponential and logarithmic) and trigonometry. Students will learn and apply fundamental identities and the Unit Circle to a variety of problems, apply transformations to graph trigonometric functions. Building upon that, students will be expected to apply other trigonometric identities (addition/subtraction, double & half angle formulas, sum-to-product, and product-to-sum) to solve a variety of problems. The course concludes with inverse trig functions, applying the laws of sines and cosines, vectors, and representing complex numbers in trigonometric form.

Pre-Requisites for Jesuit Students: Open to current 11th-grade students earning an A in regular Algebra 2 or B in Algebra 2H and subject to instructor approval. The course may also be taken to remediate a Pre-Calculus grade earned during the regular academic year.

Pre-Requisites for Non-Jesuit Students: Must have successfully completed Algebra 2 or Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3. Please be sure to consult with the Academic Counselors at your school to be sure that this course is a good fit for you and that they will accept our credits.

Review & Enrichment

Algebra I Review

June 8 – June 24: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. 

This course is designed for students who have completed a full year Algebra I course but need additional instruction in preparation for taking an accelerated or honors level course at Jesuit. The expectation is that students who successfully complete this course will demonstrate mastery of Algebra I concepts in line with those students taking accelerated Algebra 1 at Jesuit. Students will be assessed on a weekly basis and will take an exam similar in content and rigor to the year-end final exam in Algebra 1(XL).

JESUIT STUDENTS: Incoming freshmen may not register for this class without Department Approval. This course is aimed at incoming freshmen who require reinforcement of Algebra I skills in order to advance into Geometry that Fall. Permission to take this course is based upon the results of the Math challenge tests administered in April.

College Application Workshop

Session 1: June 6-June 10 from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. OR 10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. 

Session 2: June 13-June 17 from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. OR 10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. 

Jesuit High School is offering a one-week college application course for rising Jesuit seniors.

This is a small class setting of 10:1, which means that each student will receive extensive instruction on tasks such as developing an individualized college application list, creating and refining a personal statement, navigating the college application process at JHS, filling out the Common App as well as going over the UC/CSU and other University Applications.

This course will guide and help each student in understanding every stage of the college application process. At the end of this workshop, students will have the potential to have most of the college application process completed. (There are a limited number of seats in this course.)

Format: In-Person

Pre-requisite: Current Jesuit student entering 12th grade in the fall of 2022

Cost: $250 plus $50 registration fee
