The program of Christian formation is an integral part of Jesuit’s educational mission. As a Catholic high school, Jesuit exists not merely to educate young men, but to form “men of faith” and “men for others.” Practical training in Christian living is realized in the Campus Ministry program through retreats, days of reflection, liturgies, and other forms of personal spiritual formation. The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola serve as the cornerstone for spiritual formation at Jesuit. All students are offered an opportunity to evaluate their spiritual life and relationship with God through some form of retreat.
Jesuit students and alumni live by the motto: Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam – For the Greater Glory of God. Everything a Jesuit student does and thinks he does AMDG. Jesuit students do not strive for excellence and championships for their own glory or the glory of their school; they do it For The Greater Glory of God. Jesuit builds Men For Others. This is the ultimate goal of a Jesuit education. By truly being a man for others, each student can fulfill responsibilities to God, to his family, and to himself.
Christian formation of Jesuit’s mission. Each Blue Jay will be expected to accept the challenge of being a Man For Others and all that it entails.
