While the faculty of Walsh Jesuit are always available, WJ extends the classroom by providing various opportunities for students to seek extra academic support.  Whether its a math problem, or you want to take your writing to the next level, the learning services at Walsh Jesuit abound.

Academic Resource Center (ARC)

The mission of the ARC is to challenge students and support them as they maximize their potential. ARC provides support to all levels of students in order to help strengthen their executive functioning and academic skills.   Our peer tutoring program, where upperclassmen help academically support their peers in their classes, is also housed in the ARC.  The ARC provides warmth and security and applies educational material to life outside of school.

Freshman Achievement Seminar (FAS)

Student Assistance Team ("SAT")

The purpose of the Student Assistance Team (“SAT”) is to maintain a regular dialogue regarding at risk students, implement interventions (i.e. assistance from the Academic Resource Center, the Math Lab and/or the Writing Lab), and monitor a student’s social/emotional, and academic well-being. The SAT aims to remove barriers that may prevent them from being academically successful. The Team is comprised of the Academic Dean, School Counselors, Admissions Team, and Equity and Inclusion. The SAT is not a disciplinary board, but rather a team that strives to identify student barriers early to aid in their success here at Walsh Jesuit.

Bain Library

Before school, after school and during free periods, students may use the Rev. Thomas Bain, S.J., Library for study. The library holds a book collection, DVD collection, periodical collection and extensive database resources.  Librarian Gayle Schmuhl is present on Tuesdays and Thursdays to assist students with research needs and book recommendations. A faculty proctor is also present to assist.
