Sponsored by the Marquette Council #1437 Knights of Columbus, the Jesuit-Marquette Circle #4156 of Columbian Squires is a spiritual service club that includes intellectual, athletic, and social events for its members. The Circle celebrates quarterly Masses, parties, and banquets together with the Knights, while at the same time raising money for mentally disabled citizens, fostering school spirit and cleanliness, running the Mission Drive, helping charity groups, as well as working with and supporting all the organizations at Jesuit High School. The end result of participation in this organization is the development of leadership ability in each Squire, with charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism as four important tenets of the organization.

The club meets weekly and interested members travel annually to Washington, DC, for the March for Life. The club accepts and promotes the teachings of the Catholic Church on all Pro-Life Issues.

The mission of the St. Peter Claver Club is to develop a positive, nurturing environment to discuss and promote diversity at Jesuit High School. It intends to help its members develop the leadership and the intellectual, social, and spiritual skills needed to attain success in their lives.
The Sodality of Our Lady is a collaborative work of Campus Ministry and the Jesuits in residence at Jesuit High School. The Sodality aims to foster brotherhood in the community of its members, form them spiritually, and promote charitable acts of service. Each grade level sodality promises a commitment to daily prayers and devotions, Mass before school once a week, and an annual retreat with the other sodalists. Their brotherhood is strengthened by their ongoing spiritual formation at weekly meetings and service projects.
Student Campus Ministry is composed of a group of juniors and seniors who have been trained to accept the role of spiritual leaders among the student body. They assist in the planning and execution of various liturgical activities throughout the year, serving as lectors at school-wide Masses and leaders of retreats for each grade level. They are committed to building up the Body of Christ at Jesuit High School in their formal roles as student ministers as well as informally by their good example in daily student life.
