Editors (Left to Right) Patrick Dowd, Luc Carriere, Michael Paul Fine, Louis Bercaw, and Austin Hebert meet to begin the digital publication.

The newspaper has entered a new generation. With a new digital platform updated regularly, The Blue Jay Newspaper will be able to connect current Jesuit students with alumni and the entire Jesuit community.

However, the newspaper is still rooted in tradition: at the end of each quarter the staff will publish a printed newspaper. This publication will include a combination of online stories with the classic Jesuit print design.

Our editors deserve praise for their hard work creating the new digital platform and reviving the Blue Jay publication.

I am so excited about the upcoming school year and the future of the newspaper. We have a great, young staff that is passionate about writing and covering all things Jesuit.

The staff will highlight all activities regarding Jesuit student life. Upcoming stories include: teacher features, sports recaps, Blue Jays of the Month, and events in Jesuit’s community.

I encourage all readers to check the website weekly for new stories. Also, please spread the word and share articles with family members and friends so that the newspaper can continue to grow.
