Jesuit is a four-year, college preparatory high school conducted by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Admission is selective, through application in the 8th grade, a written examination which takes place on the school's campus, approval by the admissions office, and an interview by a faculty member of the school. Transfer applications are accepted for the 10th and 11th grades.
Multiple sex abuse scandals have gripped the school's community throughout the years. In one case, it was discovered that  Father William Farrington, a swimming and diving coach, molested more than 10 male students before he was relocated to Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose without any punishment from the Catholic diocese. In another series of incidents, Rev. William Feeser was accused of sexually assaulting students and supposedly went unnoticed during his 13 years at the school. More information: Sexual abuse scandal in the Society of Jesus.
Jesuit is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA). Additionally, Jesuit is a member of the College Board, the Jesuit Secondary Education Association, and the National Association for College Admission Counseling.
Each building on campus is named after one of the eight North American Martyrs, who are the school's patron saints. The largest building – the Jesuit Residence and Main Office – is named Brébeuf Hall.
The many clubs and co-curricular activities offered by Jesuit include: The Plank newspaper, The Cutlass yearbook, Speech and Debate, Robotics, Drama (Theater), Future Business Leaders of America, Mock trial, Mathletes, Drumline, and Young Democrats and Republicans.
The Jesuit High School International Robotics Team competes at the collegiate level, and is one of only two high school robotics teams entered in underwater robotics. In June 2011 the team won the Marine Advanced Technology Education Center (MATE) ROV competition which was held at the Neutral Buoyancy Lab in Houston, Texas. The team of about 20 students from all four years in the school is structured as a company with subgroups working together to design, build, test, and deliver one successful product. In 2012 the team placed third and in 2013 first at the MATE competition in Tacoma, WA, repeating again in 2014 with a first place in Alpena, MI. In 2015 the team captured its third international MATE ROV competition in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. In addition to being the overall champions, the team won awards in Design Excellence, Best Technical Documentation, Best Sales Presentation, and Best Product Demonstration.
Jesuit High School offers 15 varsity sports, most of which also feature JV and freshman squads.
Jesuit's rugby program won nine national championships through 2019, along with multiple state championships. After battling illness and weather delays at the 2019 national championships in Salt Lake City, Jesuit eked out a narrow victory against longtime cross-country rival Gonzaga College High School, to advance to the championship match. In an unprecedented act, Gonzaga formed a tunnel to honor their rival as Jesuit took the field. In that game, Jesuit won their ninth championship over near home town Herriman High School, holding Herriman a mere foot from the goal line as time expired. Jesuit High School has also produced many rugby players who have gone on to represent the United States National Team at the U-16, U-17, U-19, Collegiate, and Men's levels, detailed below in notable alumni.
The Marauders' chief rival is Christian Brothers High School (Sacramento, California). This rivalry culminates in the Holy Bowl - an annual, Jesuit-Christian Brothers American football game generally held in Charles C. Hughes Stadium. The current standings of the bowl game is 33-18-2 in favor of Jesuit.
