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.

Education and Advocacy

As a Catholic and Jesuit community, we believe every human life is a gift from God, every human life is sacred, and the dignity of every person must be respected and protected. We are called to be men and women for and with others, and Catholic Social Teaching provides a framework through which we might discover how to live as people for others. 

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.
