Dr. John Jalsevac



Dr. John Jalsevac grew up in Toronto, in a large, rambunctious Catholic family of eight. He is the proud father of seven. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy (Theology minor) from Christendom College, and a Masters in Theology from the University of Toronto.

John received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto (Centre for Medieval Studies), where he was a Faculty of Arts and Science Top (FAST) Fellow, and a winner of the Canada Graduate Scholarship. He is also the winner of the 2022 American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly's "Rising Scholar" award.

His dissertation was a comprehensive study of St. Thomas Aquinas's Philosophy of Memory.

Outside of academia, John is a proud father and an indiscriminate pursuer of hobbies including gardening, beekeeping, beer brewing, music, languages, fitness, and writing.

With his education, knowledge, deep love for our faith, the importance he puts on family, and his recognition of the wonderful distinction of classical education, our school is in expert hands.
