Frequently Asked Questions

Are there programs, activities, and clubs?

Jesuit has something for everyone, with over 80 extracurricular activities. Some of the most popular are Debate, Robotics, Medical Society, Multicultural Student Union, Jesuit Musicians Union, Environmental Club, Entrepreneurship Club, Ambassadors, and Community Service & Social Justice. Students are encouraged to start their own clubs, as well.

What is the Fine Arts program like?

Jesuit’s Fine Arts program provides innumerable opportunities for students just starting out and for those who are already accomplished artists. A wide range of classes are offered in stage acting, film, music, visual arts and emerging media (broadcasting).

What is the daily schedule like?

School begins at 8 a.m. and dismisses at 3:41 p.m. on regular order days. There are eight class periods every day, running 45 minutes each, plus a 45 minute lunch. In general, students meet every class, every day. In his freshman year, a typical freshman will take English, math, biology, theology, language, computer science, debate and PE. There are options within the departments for freshmen to choose.

How much homework is there every night?

The amount of homework depends on the course load a student takes and on his work habits. Students should expect 1.5 to 3 hours of written work and studying each night.

How do new students get involved?

From the very beginning, Jesuit works to make sure new students feel comfortable and become involved. The three freshman counselors meet individually with students to determine how best to make their transition to Jesuit as easy as possible. In addition, each freshman homeroom has four senior Big Brothers who help guide and mentor their Little Brothers. Weekly guidance classes help orient the freshmen with the traditions and events at Jesuit, and give the freshmen a chance to meet new friends.

How do students meet girls?

Jesuit boys have lots of opportunities to meet girls. Within the first couple weeks of school, we sponsor a freshman mixer inviting the girls from Ursuline Academy to campus. Band, theater and cheerleading are all coed activities, so many boys have the chance to meet girls in those programs, too. In reality, meeting girls has never been a problem.

How hard is it to make a sports team?

Of Jesuit’s 19 varsity sports, some have tryouts and cuts (basketball, soccer, golf, tennis, lacrosse, crew, baseball, hockey and cheerleading), while others offer a spot to every student who signs up (football, cross country, swimming & diving, wrestling, track & field, rugby, fencing, cycling and bowling). Athletics can be competitive, but coaches work to cultivate the skills of every individual.

Where do students come from?

Jesuit really does represent the whole Dallas metro area. Our students come from 125 different middle schools, and they live in over 100 different zip codes.

Does Jesuit have financial aid or scholarships?

Jesuit awards over $1,900,000 in need-based financial aid each year. We do not provide athletic scholarships, although tuition-based academic awards do exist. After a student has been accepted to Jesuit, his family may begin the financial aid process. Financial need has no bearing on the admissions decision, as Jesuit looks to accept any academically qualified student, regardless of their ability to pay.
