I know this title is very aggressive and pessimistic. And to be honest, when I read it, it does seem a little hyperbolic. But I would have to say it probably is the best way to describe it.

At Jesuit, sports are a significant part of lives where we strive to push our physical capabilities beyond their thresholds. To help our bodies prepare, we retreat to the weight rooms and gyms to add more resistance and to challenge our bodies further than the field, pool, or track can provide. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, athletes who...
Jesuit is a Catholic High School and has a large group of Catholic students. However, there are also some students who go to the Jesuit that are of different religious backgrounds.

When the word "community" and "Jesuit" are in the same sentence, it is safe to say that it involves service of some form or fashion. However, the three days the Class of 2020 spent in Glen Rose, TX, from October 1 through October 3, focused on something completely different. Compared to other retreats, Community Days is less formal and restricted,...
Sophomore year serves as a big transition from freshman year. Harder classes, higher expectations, everything gets bumped up a notch here. Suddenly, you must stay on top of things, or you are slacking behind. To the class of 2023, I suggest you take a look at this article before you consider taking on that extra sport, activity, or challenging...
