Big Brother Program

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Big Brother.  This student organization is committed to enhancing the school’s culture by sharing the Mission of Jesuit High School as well as the Jesuit experience with incoming students and their families as they make the transition into our school community. Big Brothers will work as mentors to instill practical habits and core values that will help develop men of competence, conscience, and compassion, men of faith, and men for others.  As a Jesuit Big Brother, you will be expected to exhibit integrity and loyalty towards the school, a spirit of cooperation, poise, and maturity.
