Our Board of Trustees, in coordination with our Jesuit Leadership Team and our Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, has identified five key Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Initiatives for 2020-21 and Beyond.
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 are a series of open forums designed to foster dialogue and spark awareness about issues that affect our school community, region, and world.
We unconditionally, unequivocally, and proudly state that BLACK LIVES MATTER. Period.
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.
