The Jesuit High School Key Club once again was recognized as the state's best this weekend (April 1) in Orlando at the annual District Convention for Florida Key Clubs.

Jesuit was one of just seven schools from among hundreds to earn Distinguished Club of the Year recognition. And earning the highest individual honor, the 2016-17 Key Clubber of The Year for the Florida Key Club, from among more than 2,000 student members at the convention, was Jesuit’s Gabriel Brown ’17.

Also, the Lieutenant Governor of Key Club for Florida District 14B will again be a Jesuit student, as Thomas Turner ’19 will succeed Joe McGonnigal ’18. See below Jesuit's new Key Club officers for 2017-18.

At Jesuit, we are responding in a dynamic way to the changing needs of education in the 21st century.
It is an exciting era, with the constant infusion of new technology and the increasing emphasis on student engagement in the learning process.
In 2014 Jesuit claimed the FHSAA's highest honor among all Class 5A schools in academics (Academic Team Champion) and athletics (All-Sports Award).
Each and every gift makes a difference to the students of Jesuit High School as they strive to become "Men for Others."
