Jesuit announced the Guides to Heaven’s Spheres initiative in 2023 on the anniversary of the construction of the Chapel of the North American Martyrs. This project will beautify, restore, and preserve the “large chapel” on Jesuit’s campus for generations of Blue Jays to come.
In an effort to secure the support necessary to renovate and modernize our campus while growing our endowment to keep Jesuit accessible to families from all walks of life, Jesuit launched the public phase of the Minds & Hearts Enlightened capital campaign in 2019. With its origins in a strategic plan initiated by then-president Fr. Raymond Fitzgerald, S.J., in 2012, the campaign has materially improved virtually every aspect of school life for students, faculty, staff, families, and visitors.
As part of a continuing enhancement of its facilities, Jesuit began a “100-year renovation” of Jesuit’s small chapel in the summer of 2014. The project helped ensure the chapel’s reverence, beauty, and dignity into the next century.
Home Field Advantage Campaign
Jesuit’s Home Field Advantage campaign was a way to support the Blue Jays and ensure that John Ryan Stadium remains the state’s preeminent high school multi-sport athletic facility.
Roussel Building Renovations
Jesuit continues to make efforts to modernize one of the school’s most heavily trafficked areas. Blue Jay student-athletes and physical education students have been using the Louis J. Roussel, Jr. Building since it opened in 1986. Improvements, which started during the summer of 2012, include a safer state-of-the-art weight training facility, a new air conditioning system, an expanded training area for wrestlers, new locker rooms and lockers, safer epoxy flooring, and enhanced lighting.
