Departments & Curriculum

Jesuit’s program of studies extends for a period of four years for those entering as freshmen and five years for those entering as pre-freshmen. On completion of the twelfth grade, the student is awarded a certificate of graduation, provided he has earned the minimum credits for the college preparatory program.

The courses offered at Jesuit High School are primarily directed toward providing the student with a well-rounded preparation for college and for life. While the courses more than fulfill the entrance requirements of all colleges, Jesuit’s academic program also strives to develop the will and intellect of each student. The academic administrators of the school reserve the right to schedule the courses they consider most adapted to the ability of the individual student. It is each student’s responsibility to successfully fulfill all requirements for graduation.

Jesuit’s ordinary graduation requirements are detailed in the school’s Bulletin. All students are encouraged to develop their full potential and, therefore, go beyond these minimum requirements.

The foundation of education at Jesuit is based on religious formation, academic excellence, value education, social responsibility, and athletic achievement. The rigorous curriculum and graduation requirements are designed to ensure all students a chance for admission to the most demanding colleges and universities in the country.

There are three program study tracks available.  Students are placed in a track upon entrance.
