Jesuit Excellence College Tour Visits IHS

Fourteen colleges and universities arrived at Immaculate High School recently as part of the Jesuit Excellence Tour. The recruitment event brings admissions staff at Jesuit schools from across the country to high schools like Immaculate.

Juniors and Seniors attended the mini college fair in Immaculate’s gym and got to meet with representatives from the following schools: Canisius College, Fairfield University, John Carroll University, Le Moyne College, Loyola University Chicago, Loyola University Maryland, Loyola University New Orleans, Marquette University, Saint Joseph’s University Philadelphia, Saint Louis University, Saint Peter’s University, The University of Scranton, Xavier University and Loyola Marymount University.

The JET tour is organized by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities and is a national organization that fosters the Jesuit, Catholic identity and mission.

A total of 119 colleges and universities have visited Immaculate throughout the fall including the University of Notre Dame, Vanderbilt University and the University of Chicago to name a few. Immaculate High School prides itself on providing a rigorous preparatory education and its students have a 100 percent college acceptance rate.

“We like to expose our students to a wide range of colleges and universities so it’s been a busy fall,” said Tim Nash, Immaculate Dean of Counseling and Student Services, who recently visited Yale University with a group of students. “Our counselors work one on one with students to help them find the perfect fit for them.”

Immaculate High School is a private, non-profit Catholic college-preparatory institution serving students from 28 communities in Connecticut and New York. A continued commitment to our 60-year tradition of being a value-based, student-centric, outcomes focused Catholic high school, has driven our rising trajectory as evidenced by the 2022 Niche A+, Best Schools ranking.
