The Counseling Department collaborates with Parents in Partnership (PIP) to provide educational forums for our parent community via presentations by JHS faculty and administration, as well as from experts in their respective fields. The mission of PIP aligns with the Profile of the Jesuit Graduate and aims to support parents as they walk with their students on the four year high school journey through Jesuit High School.
In addition to PIP, Jesuit’s counselors host a series of Freshman Parent Workshops designed to address one of the most common questions asked by our new families: How do I best support my student through high school? The workshops are a terrific opportunity to meet your student’s counselor and provide a forum for parent dialogue and community-building.
