In this issue of Gesu Magazine, we recognize how the Gesu community provides the building blocks for lifelong success.
Many of our 450 students face challenges stemming from an existence of poverty and exposure to violence in Gesu’s surrounding neighborhoods. Despite these circumstances, our students excel.
In the pages that follow, we hope you enjoy reading about how Gesu enables children to persevere and to soar:
- Gesu’s formula for success ensures that top-notch teachers deliver personalized attention, from remedial support to advanced classes, pushing students to their highest potential. Our alumni demonstrate that this paradigm works, for example, a 2013 graduate who shines as an exceptional leader and scholar.
- Gesu’s identity, rooted in the Jesuit and IHM traditions, enriches students’ spiritual formation. Children become young “men and women for others,” who serve through efforts such as the Gesu Justice League.
- Gesu’s volunteers, board members, and donors dedicate time and resources to give students access to quality education. Sponsors create opportunity through scholarships and forge lasting relationships with students.
- Gesu never stops innovating. Our MAGIS initiative for character development and our Graduate Support Program catapult students to success.
