Redesigned Website Offers New and Familiar Features
The new website of Jesuit High School went live on Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013. The new site features a responsive design, which provides an optimal viewing experience — easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling. The new site accommodates a wide range of devices, from desktop computers to tablets to mobile phones. This article provides some guidelines and basic troubleshooting tips to help you navigate the new site.

Navigating the New Site
Some of the pages and links that viewers of Jesuit’s previous website had become accustomed to have changed with the new site. Several of the new pages and features provide additional information and even facilitate your involvement at Jesuit.
Archive of Jesuit’s Previous Website
When planning for the website’s re-design, Jesuit was careful to ensure that stories, photos, and features on the previous site would remain intact. The previous website has become the Archives site.
Keeping In Touch & Being Involved
At the top right section of each page, there are links to view the Calendar, Contacts, Blue Jay Shop, and Donate. Each of these pages makes it easier than ever to become involved, communicate with, and support Jesuit.
Students, Parents, Faculty, and Alumni each have a gateway to resources and news tailored to their interests.
