Jesuit High School’s Open House on Tuesday night (Nov. 11) drew hundreds of prospective 8th grade students – and hundreds more family members – who came to learn all about Jesuit.
The night began in a packed St. Anthony’s Chapel, where admissions director Steve Matesich ’91, principal Barry Neuburger, and president Fr. Richard C. Hermes, S.J. addressed the gathering, and students Luke Surak ’18 and Clark Bulleit ’15 made special presentations.
Everyone was then divided into smaller groups for student-led campus tours through every Jesuit academic department as well as numerous "live" extra-curricular activities, before ending in the cafeteria with refreshments and additional questions.
Visitors were able to see Jesuit in action while walking the beautiful 40-acre campus after dusk. At the various tour stops, Jesuit students worked on their art projects, performed musical pieces and the school play, held sports team practices in soccer, wrestling, and basketball, and conducted academic department presentations. Visitors saw the school from the students’ perspective.
