Student Life

Dear Friends of McQuaid Jesuit,

A McQuaid Jesuit student encounters many opportunities for growth, discernment, and formation during his years spent here at 1800 South Clinton. It is our goal to help the boys who walk through these halls to become young gentlemen of competence, conscience, and compassion who take responsibility for their own intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth in concert with the efforts and support of the faculty, staff, and administration. It is the strength of our school community that empowers each student to be himself while still discovering all the magnificent potential he has inside. We strive to help students reflect on who they are, what God calls them to become, and how they answer His precious call and go forth with courage.

We challenge our students to look beyond their self-interests to offer themselves in service to others as agents of impact and change in society. Through day to day interactions of student life and with awareness of and respect for the rich traditions of our school, we hope to help form young gentlemen who will look to find God in all things and an inspiration to share their God-given talents for the betterment of the communities in which they will one day live, work and worship in a way that is true to our Jesuit ideals.

For McQuaid,

Dr. Christopher Parks, ’90
