Junior year isn’t just any other year of classes, grades, and finals. Junior year is a call to be answered, a call to grow as a person and find a place where one belongs. In particular, for Jesuit students, it is a call to learn what fulfilling the profile of the graduate actually entails.

Aidan Smith ’19, recipient of the Science Honor Award, spoke about his expectations going into our Convocation. “I got the award for science. Some people like Hector had to write essays, but I had no idea I was gonna get anything.”

Jaibin Mathew ’19 recipient of the Fr. Pedro Arrupe Award detailed his experience during the ceremony. “I honestly slouched down in my chair when I heard the award announced because I thought it was too big for me to win. Going into Convocation I really wanted to get the Mandarin class award because I really enjoy that course, but anything else was just a blessing.”

Extracurricular Awards

Participation in extracurricular activities is encouraged and valued at Jesuit. Such participation serves to foster talents in ways that go beyond the purview of the classroom.

The school now recognizes those students whose involvement in extracurricular activities has been exemplary.
