Chicago Blackhawks James Wisniewski and Michael Holmqvist will be in attendance at Johnny's Ice House on Thursday, April 12 from 3:30-5:00 pm to hand out goodie bags and sign autographs for students from the Chicago Jesuit Academy. This select group of students has been awarded the skating party as an incentive for completing their homework and good behavior during the school year.
Chicago Jesuit Academy is a full-scholarship, college preparatory, Jesuit, Roman Catholic middle school for young men from modest economic backgrounds. The Academy is distinguished by small classes, an extended academic day and a longer school year to prepare students for success in college prep high schools, universities, and positions of community leadership.
Chicago Jesuit Academy helps students develop as young men who are open to growth, religious, intellectually competent, loving, and committed to doing justice in the service of others, in accord with the Jesuit mission and tradition. The school's success in its mission is made possible by the disciplined sacrifices of their students, parents, faculty, staff, volunteers and benefactors.
Chicago Jesuit Academy was also a 2006 grant recipient from Chicago Blackhawk Charities. Chicago Jesuit Academy received a grant of $48,000 that went to cover the tuition for four students starting their first year at Chicago Jesuit Academy.
