Welcome to the 2018-19 academic year at Jesuit High School! We, as the Jesuit High School community, are proud to be part of a 460 year Catholic and Ignatian tradition of educating young men and women to be in service for and with others.
Our academic tradition and best educational practices have endured because we have a clear mission and a purpose-driven narrative, or story, centered on our educational and spiritual goals. Our mission was born and has been nurtured from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and reinforced daily in collaboration and companionship with the Society of Jesus on a global scale. Our narrative is a reflection of the work that we share with one another to build the Kingdom of God in our daily lives. This year we will focus on the theme of “Loving” from the Profile of the Jesuit High School Graduate at Graduation, and as noted by James Martin, S.J., prolific author and Editor at Large at America magazine, “Noticing helps us realize that our lives are already suffused with the presence of God.”
As we move forward with best educational practices to inspire young women and men to understand and meet the new challenges of the 21st century, we focus on the connected nature of our journey and the need to pay attention to the myriad ways that God encourages us to be attentive and loving towards those we are called to serve. We strive to walk side by side with parents, alums, and fellow Jesuit companions throughout the world to form young men and women of competence, conscience, and compassion who will transform the world in the image and likeness of a loving God.
