Jeanites @ 2:30

Cheering on SJB ActivitiesSJB challenges its students to achieve both inside and outside the classroom. Therefore the final bell does not mark the end of school but rather begins a new part of the day where Jeanites are involved and active in athletics, clubs, and other afterschool programming. At SJB there is truly something for everybody. Jeanites are encouraged to become well rounded young women and to pursue interests outside of their academic work. Clubs and activities are programmed to allow Jeanites to be as involved as possible and able to explore different passions. Athletics, clubs, and activities allow students to refine their talents and to acquire new skills. Clubs and other afterschool activities build student leadership skills and allow students to collaborate, essential skills for the 21st century! Throughout her four years, the Jeanite will assemble an impressive portfolio which testifies to her being truly a woman oriented to the future and committed to becoming a well rounded individual.

    • Library / Resource Center
      • The Library / Resource Center is open every day from 7:00 am until 4:00 pm. Here the Librarian is ready to assist students in research and acquiring the necessary information needed to complete papers, projects, or reports. St. Jean Baptiste High School has chosen Follett Destiny Library Manager to manage its library resources and help make the Library more efficient and effective at supporting active student learning. Our students and teachers can now seamlessly search and access all print and digital content from just one location with a single sign-on through the Destiny portal: https://stjeanbaptiste.follettdestiny.com. The portal includes all of our school’s library resources, such as eBooks, digital databases, and content-rich and safe websites. The Library / Resource Center is also a place where students gather to study with one another and tutor each other through our Peer Tutor program.

    • Peer Tutoring
      • Peer Tutoring is a service that offers academic support to students by students. Both students benefit from this learning interaction.

The Guidance Department will work to assist students seeking help and to pair them with appropriate tutors.
