i am a former graduate of jesuit high school '02, and from a completely unbiased standpoint, the school has in and of itself made me into the person i am today, my academics, my self confidence, the lifelong skills i have learned that have already helped me in the business world, The teachers are genuine, the goal is the same, the education is second to none, the athletic programs are without a doubt from top to bottom the best in the state, and when i go back i sincerely feel at home.
I believe Jesuit is one of the finest schools in the country. Look at the number of National Merit Semifinalists, the consistently high performance by extracurricular groups and the incredible level of scholarship money awarded to graduating seniors. All accomplished with tuition levels half to a third of private schools. But numbers don t do Jesuit, or the experience your son will have, justice. All schools use words like spirit and character building and camaraderie but with Jesuit you will find a city full of graduates that are the living embodiment of those terms. Good luck finding a Jesuit graduate that doesn t want his son to go there. There s more to take pride in. Jesuit leads with programs confronting alcohol and drug abuse. For over 150 years no qualified student has ever been denying entrance for financial reasons. Jesuit students come from every zip code and financial strata in the city.
JesuitHigh School in New Orleans took my three boys in the eighth grade and 5 years later they became young men. Jesuit introduced them to a highly competitive environment of academics and athletics. The teachers and coaches encouraged and pushed them to realize their potential and in the process my sons developed self-esteem, a strong work ethic a strong bond of brotherhood with most of their classmates that remains in tact years later. I'll readily admit Jesuit High School is not for every student. It requires a total commitment by the student to the school and involvement into its culture. No student will maximize the Jesuit experience without working hard to become the best athlete, best academic and best person he can be.
I have only attended the school for 1 year but besides the lack of girls I love it.
