The academic departments evaluate course materials annually and then select the resources they believe will best promote learning for the following school year. Jesuit recognizes the high cost of textbooks and as such will provide digital texts to students at no additional cost whenever possible. Hardback copies of these books are not necessary but have been listed on the booklist should a student wish to purchase a hard/paper copy in addition to the digital copy. Jesuit does not provide digital texts for all classes. Families are responsible for acquiring all remaining texts. Please read course notes carefully to see which books will be provided for your son.
Follett Virtual Bookstore is Jesuit's preferred online bookseller. Book sales from their site will be available after student schedules for 2017-18 have been released. They have been furnished with Jesuit's booklist and have the titles listed by course and in stock. For families that have purchased from Follett before, the company has made some changes to their website that should make the process easier.
Math and Science faculty will be using the TI-84 graphing calculator in classroom demonstrations and we encourage students to have the same. For your convenience, this calculator is available in the Ranger Connection. You may also purchase the calculator wherever is convenient for you. As applicable to your son, please review the following standardized testing calculator standards: PSAT; SAT; ACT; AP Exams. See your teacher or counselor if you have any questions.
Please direct any questions regarding course materials to Mark Batik.
Links to textbooks for the 2017-18 school year will be available after schedules are released. If you have any questions, please contact Mark Batik.
