Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Jesuit High School is committed to having a student body and faculty that represents and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We promote and encourage critical thinking, dialogue, understanding, and awareness. Jesuit embraces and is inclusive of ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, sexual orientation, religious and other diversity. Such diversity broadens our student and faculty educational experiences.

Jesuit Community Conversations

Jesuit Community Conversations are a series of open forums designed to foster dialogue and spark awareness about issues that affect our school community, region, and world.

Parent Affinity Groups

Each of our parent groups provides a unique and intentional space for parents to come together and share their unique experiences being part of the Jesuit community.
