Fathers' Club

Cor Jesu Fathers' Club Mission Statement

The Cor Jesu Father's Club is organized exclusively to enhance the academic, social and spiritual lives of Cor Jesu Academy students.  


The Cor Jesu Fathers’ Club (CJFC) exists to provide opportunities for CJ dads to spend quality time with their CJ daughters, meet other CJ dads, and provide assistance to CJ in a variety of ways.   To those dads who are sending their first child to high school, you’ll come to know the saying is true  – you won’t believe how fast four years go by!   If you get involved as a dad, however, you’ll have experiences and memories of your daughter’s time at CJ that will be lasting.   Joining the Father’s Club is easy; you just need a daughter at CJ, and you’re in.  There is no application, dues or initiation, you just need to participate to the extent that you desire.  Opportunities range from attending our father-daughter events, such as the Father Daughter Mass, Movie Night or the Father Daughter Dinner Dance, or you can help out with a fix-it night or a parking event, or you can take it up a notch and join our informal board and help get these events planned.  On behalf of my fellow CJFC members, I invite and encourage you to get involved with the Fathers’ Club at Cor Jesu.  The calendar linked below provides a list of our events. Please feel free to contact one of the 2017-2018 Board Members listed below for more information.
Thank You,
Chris Fox

2018-19 Fathers’ Club Activities and Events

She’ll always be “Daddy’s Little Girl” – but before you know it her high school years will be gone, and she’ll be off to college. There are so many chances to create lasting memories with your daughter – and many of them can occur by participating in CJA’s Fathers’ Club events. Ask a sophomore, junior or senior Dad, and he’ll agree – these events have been a highlight of their “Little Girl’s” time at CJA.
