Created in April of 2015 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the Jesuit Schools Network (JSN) of North America is the successor organization to the Jesuit Secondary Education Association (JSEA).
The Jesuit Schools Network replaces JSEA as the organization charged with providing services and programming to the 83 Jesuit pre-secondary and secondary schools in the U.S. and Canada. Prior to the founding of the Jesuit Schools Network, Jesuit schools were affiliated with the Society of Jesus through their membership in JSEA and through their relationships with their local Jesuit province. The Jesuit Schools Network combines both roles in one organization, a historic new paradigm where Jesuit schools are networked within a province and with a central networking organization.
The Jesuit Schools Network’s board will oversee an executive director, who will ensure quality and consistency in programming across provinces and for the Assistancy, and also serve as the secretary for secondary and pre-secondary education at the Jesuit Conference. The first executive director of the Jesuit Schools Network is long-time Jesuit educator, Fr. William Muller, SJ.
