Education & 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. Our faith is a lens through which we analyze the realities in our world and leads us to discern the steps towards social action. 

This page includes many resources from a Catholic, Jesuit perspective. In alignment with our institutional values of being Open to Growth and Committed to Doing Justice, we also include some non-Catholic authors, speakers, and experts who offer important perspectives on peace, justice, faith, and equity. Inclusion of a text or author on this list does not mean that Jesuit High endorses every idea or argument of the text or author, but that we believe their ideas are worth exploring. If you have resources you would like to share, please contact us!

Many of the resources below have been used for faculty and parent groups, required or recommended reading for students and more to create opportunities for dialogue and discernment. However, this is not an exhaustive list.
