Absentee Policy

Because of the effort to build community, attendance is a crucial part of the Jesuit education. Absences occur, but it is vital that the student and his parents work to ensure that they happen as infrequently as possible. When absences occur, the attendance desk (972) 387-8700 x325 must be called or emailed prior to 8 a.m.

Although a parent has reported a student’s absence by telephone or email, on the day of his return to school and before he attends any classes, a student who has been absent should report to the attendance office with a note signed by his parent or guardian (email alone is not sufficient) stating the reason for his absence. Each day of absence should be acknowledged in the note.

Driver Education

Jesuit's Driver Education Program offers students a comprehensive, fully-integrated course that covers a one-semester period of time. The program is offered during the fall, spring and summer semesters.

Onsite Driver Education

Jesuit Dallas offers classroom and evening Driver Education classes, each semester, and during the summer.

- The Classroom phase requires 32 hours.
- Students are required to attend all sessions.
- Students must be 14 by the start of the class.
- After students get their permit they may sign up for behind-the-wheel.
- Classroom cost: $325


We will offer behind-the-wheel instruction on the weekends and in the summer. If you choose you may take the behind-the-wheel instruction at Jesuit or the student may transfer to another driving school or to parent taught behind-the-wheel instruction.

Behind-the-wheel requires 14 hours of in-car instruction (7 hours of in-car observation and 7 hours of driving). Students must be 15 to start behind-the-wheel and hold a valid permit. An additional 30 hours of parent taught instruction is required by the state.
Behind-the-wheel cost: $225
