Academics at Jesuit
Outstanding academic preparation is an integral component of Jesuit schools, and it has been a hallmark of Jesuit High School since its inception in 1899. "Academic Excellence" is ingrained as one of the four components of the school's Strategic Plan.
The current era of secondary education is an exciting one, with the infusion of technology and increasing emphasis on student engagement in the learning process. Jesuit is responding in a dynamic way to the changing needs of 21st century education, with the successful introduction of our 1:1 iPad Program in 2014 as a prime example, as well as the remarkable progress of the Advanced Placement program. From 2013-16, Jesuit earned an exceptional 78% pass rate on all AP tests taken, while doubling its AP course options and test takers in that span. Jesuit now offers more than 20 AP courses, up from nine in 2009, including the prestigious AP Capstone, as well as a new 3-year Engineering program added for 2016-17. At the same time, Jesuit remains true to its heritage of forming men of faith and "Men for Others."
