Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas offers young men an excellent, Catholic education in the classical Jesuit tradition, with the purpose of forming a community of men of high moral principles and service to others. In offering a college preparatory education, Jesuit emphasizes academic excellence and intellectual challenge. The interaction of students and faculty introduces each student to the various fields of human knowledge, invites him to a mastery of particular skills, teaches him how to learn for himself, and encourages him to think critically. Thus, the program of studies looks to develop in its students "perfect eloquence," having something worthwhile to say and being able to express it effectively and persuasively. Jesuit recognizes the importance of educating the whole person, and thus every aspect of the school seeks the fullest possible development of every dimension of its students. Such a liberal education frees the student to develop fully the human potential God has given him. Jesuit's education seeks to inspire a joy in learning and a thirst for greater and deeper knowledge.
