About the Retreat

Incoming Freshman families, save the date! Be on the lookout for an RSVP link that will be coming soon! The Freshmen Overnight Retreat will be August 24-25, 2024! This kick-off to your son’s four years at Jesuit is a highlight of Freshman year. Your son will spend the retreat with his upperclassman Big Brother, who will serve as a guide and mentor for your son as he begins his journey at Jesuit. Our newest marauders will be welcomed into the brotherhood, build camaraderie with their new classmates, and learn about campus life at Jesuit. Because the experience of the Freshman Retreat is so important for new students, participation in the entire retreat is MANDATORY for all Freshmen.

Every freshman chooses an Arts elective

Select your passion

Whether it’s on stage in our drama productions, in the community as a part of the 12 choral and instrumental ensembles, or in our studio art, film and photography classes, the arts offerings at Jesuit allow our students to develop their God-given talents with their confidence and means of self-expression to be successful in life beyond high school. More than 70% of our students choose to continue pursuing their artistic ambitions, inside and outside of the classroom, beyond the one-year requirement.

When and how do you select your Arts elective?

During the enrollment process, our incoming freshman can rank their preferred electives. If enrollment is completed by the deadline, they’ll get a preliminary schedule during the Welcome Event.

See the Course Catalog for a full description of all the classes.
