All incoming freshmen will be placed in Theology, English, Language, Mathematics, Rhetoric and Civics, Biology, Introduction to Computer Programming and Freshman Experience. The Freshman Experience is a non-credit class that includes study hall, physical education, and health.
All students will also be enrolled in Physical Education unless they elect to take Band which exempts them from Physical Education. Participating in athletics (e.g., Football, lacrosse, rugby) counts as Physical Education credit.
When completing the Enrollment Form you will be asked to select your foreign language. See Academic Departments for further course descriptions.
Information about logging into RangerNet, our platform for Grades, Schedules, etc., will be sent to enrolled students and parents on or before April 9th.
The Admissions Committee is made up of counselors, administrators, teachers, and leaders on campus. The process is holistic, in the sense it looks at all aspects of the young man before any decision is made. During the process, the Committee recommends some students have a formalized orientation and enrichment experience before classes start in August. Over the years, this process has yielded great success.
If your son received an invitation to the Freshman Summer Institute as part of his admission to the Class of 2025, please visit https://jesuitdallas.campbrainregistration.com/ to register for the program. It includes various non-credit (Math and/or English Enrichment) and for-credit experiences (e.g., .5 credit of Rhetoric and Civics). The program lasts from June 7-25. Families should review their letter before registering - it is invitation only. Students not invited to this program are able to take Summer School (see below).
Sample schedule for Freshman Summer Institute:
Students invited to one class (Math/English):
- 8:00-10:00am: Math or English
- 10:30-12:30pm: Rhetoric and Civics class
Students invited to two classes (Math and English)

Jesuit aims to place students in a language and math level that allows them to be challenged and successful. With that goal in mind, it is important that all students be evaluated prior to setting foot on campus for their first day of class. Jesuit is administering Math and Language placement tests online. Details about the testing will be sent on or before April 9th via email. They will be available to students for over 1 week (details included in email), so there is no set day for the test administration.
Placement is not revealed immediately after testing; teachers review the results to make sure the student is placed appropriately.
Language Placement Testing
Each spring the Language Department uses a diagnostic assessment to appropriately place incoming students who have taken Spanish, French, Mandarin or Latin and wish to continue studying this same language at Jesuit. Students are required to complete 3 successive years of the same language beginning with freshman year. Please read the following information carefully.
Testing is required for:
- students who have had any previous instruction, no matter how little or infrequent. If your son’s transcript reports a language class, he will NOT receive a schedule until he has completed a placement test.
- students who speak the language (French, Spanish or Mandarin) in the home. If the student is taking the same language as he speaks at home, he needs to be evaluated, even if he has never taken a formal class.
Testing is not required for:
- students with NO foreign language classes on their transcript that match the language they are choosing to study while at Jesuit.
- students who elect to take a different language at Jesuit than their previous language experience. This includes, for example, a native speaker of Spanish enrolling in French, Mandarin or Latin.
The placement test has various sections (reading, writing, etc.) that aim to best support the student and his proficiency. Students should allow about 60 to 75 minutes for the test. Native speakers of the respective languages will have a longer writing section, so please allow about 75 to 90 minutes.
The majority of students will begin in a first year language class. You will know in which class he has been placed when he receives his freshman schedule.
If you have any additional questions, please contact the Language Department co-chairs:
MATH Placement Testing
At Jesuit we strive to match our incoming freshman with the mathematics class that provides both the greatest opportunity for success, as well as the appropriate level of challenge. Placement in mathematics classes is determined from several criteria including:
- The math courses indicated on the student’s eighth grade transcript
- ISEE scores, particularly a student’s math and quantitative scores. These can help determine honors level placement.
- Jesuit’s Math Placement Test results (ALEKS)
Listed below are common scenarios that may help you to better understand math placement.
- An incoming 9th grade student who has not completed an Algebra course in 8th grade or does not perform satisfactorily on Jesuit’s Algebra Skills Assessment will be placed in a level of Algebra 1. Typically this student will take a Geometry course in 10th grade and an Algebra 2 course in 11th grade.
- An incoming 9th grade student who has completed an Algebra course in 8th grade and performs satisfactorily on Jesuit’s Algebra Skills Assessment will be placed in a level of Algebra 2. Typically this student will take a Geometry course in 10th grade and a Precalculus course in 11th grade.
Other placement scenarios are possible. Please use the contact information below if you have specific questions regarding math placement or mathematics at Jesuit.
If you have any additional questions, please contact the Mathematics Department co-chairs:
Registration for Summer School and Athletic Performance will be available beginning at 8am on Monday, March 29th.
*Payment plans are available for summer school*
Please contact the Finance Office if you have any questions regarding financial support options.
Academic Course - Rhetoric and Civics
Jesuit will offer Rhetoric and Civics for-credit in the summer semester. The class is a one-semester class (0.5 credit). Tuition is $550.00 and payment is due at the time of enrollment. The class will meet for 3 hours per day (either 8-11am or 12-3pm) for three weeks (June 7- June 25). Students are given the chance to request a time/period at the time of enrollment. Schedules with period, teacher, and room will be emailed in late May.
This course is a graduation requirement that must be completed before the conclusion of the freshman year. Students not taking the course during the summer will take it during either the fall or spring semester.
There are some advantages to taking a summer class. It will reduce the course load during the academic year, potentially reducing homework loads and allowing more time for extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, etc.). Summer school will not, however, reduce the minimum number of credits the student must take during the academic year. All freshmen are required to take 5.50 credits (exclusive of Physical Education) between the fall and the spring semester.
Athletic Performance Camp
Jesuit will be offering a non-credit opportunity for summer training in physical fitness. This program/camp is optional for athletes and non-athletes. This is a great way to meet your class peers and get to know the various ways by which we strive for being Physically Fit.

Jesuit requires that all students supply their own laptop to be used for educational activities at school. Students are expected to bring their device fully charged to school every day. They should also bring appropriate charging materials.
Students attending Summer School should come prepared with their device on the first day.
Please visit https://www.jesuitdallas.org/students/resources for more information.
Students are required to have their health forms completed before attending classes at Jesuit - including Summer School.
Jesuit has partnered with MagnusHealth for health records. Information will be sent to accepted families about how to access MagnusHealth. Jesuit has a Single Sign On (SSO) feature with Magnus. It can only be accessed using the RangerNet portal. Information about RangerNet and Magnus will be sent electronically to families on or before April 9th.
Regardless of your son's desire to participate in UIL athletics, all Jesuit students are required to complete the UIL health screening forms within MagnusHealth. Desires and pursuits change over the years, in addition to some classes being UIL eligible (e.g., Band), so we require all students to complete all UIL documents for attendance.
Health and Immunization Forms
Health forms are completed by each student. The form lists the student's history of immunizations and current physical condition. This form is kept on file at Jesuit for a period of four (4) years after graduation. Texas state law requires that all students attending school must have current immunizations. Incomplete forms will be communicated to the parents via MagnusHealth. Students who do not have Health forms updated in MagnusHealth by the end of the first day of school or do not return proof of immunizations by due dates may be asked to remain out of school until the verification of immunization is received. For further information regarding Texas state immunization requirements, please refer to: Department of Immunizations Division.
Students are not required to have the COVID-19 vaccine in 2021-2022; however, families should be fully aware that not having the vaccine will require them to quarantine if contact tracing puts them in a position of being vulnerable to contracting the coronavirus. Furthermore, some extracurricular activities (e.g., overnight trips and visits to certain service sites) may be unavailable to students without the COVID-19 Vaccine. COVID-19 Vaccine cards can by uploaded to MagnusHealth. Contact the School Nurse (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
Medical Authorization Forms
Medical Release forms are included in MagnusHealth. Should a student require medical treatment while in the care of a Jesuit faculty or staff member, the form is readily available to verify the parents' permission to seek treatment. The form allows the student to participate in off-campus activities. Students who do not have Medical Release forms in MagnusHealth by the end of the first day of school will be asked to remain out of school until the completed document is received.
