Overview

Academic Support Center

Jesuit High School is committed to creating a supportive and inclusive academic learning environment. The Academic Support Center seeks to ensure that all students have full and equal access to this educational environment.  We recognize that every student is unique and in keeping with our commitment to Cura Personalis (care for the whole person), Jesuit High School offers programs and support for students with learning differences. Additionally, we assist faculty in their efforts to provide reasonable accommodations and equal access to learning.

Students with documented learning differences and/or AD/HD have the opportunity to work closely with the Academic Support Center staff. Some of our services include:

  • Creation of an individualized Formal Written Plan based upon the student’s psycho-educational assessment.
  • Goal setting and academic planning tailored to your son’s learning differences.
  • Coordinating academic accommodations such as extended-time testing, preferential seating, etc.
  • Instructing students in study skills and executive skill development.

California Scholarship Federation (CSF) is a state-wide academic honors organization that recognizes students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement. Students may apply to the Jesuit High School chapter of CSF each semester. Academic qualifications apply – see the application and lists for more information about whether you qualify.

Students who have been members of CSF for four of their last five semesters of high school qualify for a lifetime membership.

The applications are taken each semester. Reference the CSF lists to complete the application. You must attach a copy of your previous semester grades and $10 for dues.

Peer Tutoring

CSF provides free peer tutoring to all students on a drop-in basis. Tutors are available in LM 102 during every period every day and additionally at lunch on Monday through Thursday. We provide tutoring to all students who are in need, in most subject areas. Peer tutors have often taken the same courses and have strong experience with the subject matter.
