Profile of a Graduate at Graduation

We, the community of Jesuit High School, have great hopes for the young men and women who graduate from our school. We have been inspired by the five-century tradition of St. Ignatius to prepare young people to be thoughtful, responsible Christian leaders. Ignatius challenged us to do more than average work and to instill in our students a sense of gratitude and the desire to lead and serve their fellow men and women for the greater glory of God. When students leave Jesuit High School, we know their growth is not completed. Still, we want our program and community to help them mature and grow more confident in themselves and in their ability to affect positively their community. We know that life will hold many challenges for our graduates, and we desire to form young men and women intellectually capable, spiritually aware, and physically strong. These abilities will permit them to lead and serve others for the greater glory of God. The document that follows is our guide. It helps us to be clear in our purpose and directed in our actions. We have identified five general categories to describe our ideal graduate: Open to Growth, Intellectually Competent, Religious, Loving and Committed to Doing Justice. These five categories contain the specific characteristics we want to instill in our students so they can continue the mission of St. Ignatius. ​​​​​​​
