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.
The school's success in its mission is made possible by the disciplined sacrifices of our students, parents, faculty, staff, volunteers and benefactors.
