Community Wellness Strategic Objectives

Promote cura personalis by fostering the physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual wellness of its students for their own growth and development as "men and women for others".  This will include:
  • A cohesive effort to improve student life, from intramural programming to deans' office initiatives with campus administers and counselors.
  • The education of students, parents, and the community about the risks and consequences of the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
  • The encouragement for students to live in accordance with the laws of our city, state, and nation concerning the use of these substances.  This includes establishment and enforcement of related school rules for all students.
  • The guidance for students and families toward help as needed for chemical dependency and support them in these efforts.
Concurrent programming will be offered for Walsh Jesuit adults in similar, age-appropriate practices.
The Walsh Jesuit High School Strategic Planning Process was supported by a wide range of stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff, Board, alumni, current and past parents, and neighbors.  

Our deepest appreciation goes out to all who assisted with this important process that was led by Board Member Stacy Brovitz '77.
