I often heard Jesuit was a special place. Now I know it is. The academics are rigorous and there are classes and levels of classes for all. You can take Algebra as a Freshman or Calculus depending on your level of readiness. There are language classes, honor classes, but most of all the students are expected to take care of their needs on their own. It is truly preparation for college in all ways (Academic, Study Habits, Self-Ownership).
While many think of sports when they hear Jesuit, it really offers something for everyone. The theatre offers an opportunity to design, produce sets, direct and act in plays. The clubs offer anything you want because you can create a club for any interest.
As a non-Catholic family I was hesitate about all the religion. But we have found that it has challenged religion as a whole and made our family stronger in not only our own faith, but we have a better understanding of the many roles faith has played across the world and how important it is for us all think and act out of our comfort zone!
Jesuit's motto is Care for Others and Do the Best You Can DO at What You DO. They mean it, they expect it, it is a requirement. And to me that is one reason why Jesuit is so special.
