President's Welcome

Welcome!

Thank you so much for coming to our website, especially as we celebrate the 50th year of our founding!

We are so blessed to stand on the shoulders of those so committed to open a Jesuit school in the area and we are planning for even more great things for the next 50 year to build upon our heritage, from an enhanced science curriculum and entrepreneur program to our new state-of-the art track, scoreboard and turfed field.

We are Walsh Jesuit:  a Catholic, Jesuit high school that offers an outstanding college-preparatory curriculum in a caring, supportive atmosphere that fosters intellectual curiosity and value formation. With the motto of forming  Men and Women for Others, the very heart of our mission is to Give Greater Glory to God as we work with our wonderful families to develop young women and men of competence, conscience, and compassion.

Taken from a 1973 address by the Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., former Superior General of the Society of Jesus, the motto was presented as a challenge to Jesuit alumni worldwide and, in fact, has become the motto of all 54 Jesuit secondary schools throughout the United States. In his speech, Fr. Arrupe urged Jesuit alumni to use their gifts and education for lives of service by participating in the school community, becoming active in their own education, going beyond the minimal expectations in their development, and showing compassion for the least in the community and the world.

This is Walsh Jesuit. Whether you are an alum looking up a class reunion or a future Warrior or friend of the school, know that we take this mission to heart and will continue to accept the challenge that St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, gave to his friend Francis Xavier as he missioned him to bring the Gospel to the East: “Go and light the world on fire!”

Go Warriors and Happy 50th anniversary to all in the Walsh Jesuit family. Know that you are in our prayers and how grateful we are for all who serve the school so well!

Sincerely,

Mr. Karl Ertle
President
