Since first opening its doors, Jesuit has remained committed to not allowing financial hardship to be a barrier for qualified young men who seek to become Men for Others. Now more than ever, the need for so many wonderful families in our community has never been greater. The Jesuit community is a model for society; we rally together and quickly in times of tragedy and we show care for one another without expecting anything in return. The Jesuit experience began with our sons, but just as Jesuit provides an education that goes well beyond academics, our commitment in supporting this transformational opportunity goes beyond four years.
Jesuit allowed our sons to walk their own unique path, and although everyone’s experience was slightly different, we have all witnessed how Jesuit creates an environment where young men are instilled with a deep conviction to always consider their global neighbor; to seek ways to help those in need and to work hard to make the world a better place. Men for Others isn’t just a mantra, it’s a belief, and our sons carry that spirit forward for the rest of their lives.
There are many high schools throughout the metroplex that can challenge students academically, but Jesuit is unique in how it nurtures faith, integrity, accountability, and an indescribable brotherhood. Many families have been significantly impacted by the pandemic, and for some, the struggle is dire. We bristle at the thought of young men losing out on this life-changing experience because of circumstances beyond their control and the time for us to step up and help those in our Jesuit Family is now.
We are tremendously grateful for your continued support, and ask that if you have the means, to please consider making a difference in the lives of current and future students.
