Jesuit's Class of 2020 has endured a wild ride over the past four years, and this year has offered no shortage of turbulence. From the October tornado to the Ranger Day cancellation, many seniors looked to second semester as an opportunity to enjoy the last few months of high school with the teachers, classmates, friends, and brothers they've grown...

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. Since we have this religious diversity, it's important to recognize it. After all, non-Catholic students at Jesuit are still part of its Catholic community, even though they may...
