Alumni Resources

Did you know that the road to college goes through middle school? There is a clear relationship between middle school preparation, high school success, and entry into college, and the Washington Jesuit Academy is committed to seeing that relationship through.

The Washington Jesuit Academy’s Graduate Support Program provides a unique mentoring, coaching as well as academic and social support program specifically designed to encourage WJA alumni to achieve success in high school and beyond.

Graduate Support staff work closely with parents, guardians, students, and high school administration to prepare Academy alumni for a successful transition into and through high school.
