Alumni & Graduate Support

A clear relationship exists between middle school preparation, high school success, and entry into college. Gesu School is committed to seeing that relationship through. The Gesu Graduate Support Program (GSP) provides resources and services for current Gesu students, alumni, parents, and guardians.


To walk with our alumni as they pursue their educational and personal goals in becoming independent, lifelong learners. The Graduate Support Office ensures that students continue their educational advancement, fulfill their potential, and maintain productive roles in society. Gesu is home. The GSP supports all alumni after they have moved on to high school, college, or the workforce.
