Jesuit High School was founded in 1956 by the Society of Jesus and is part of a 450-year Jesuit educational tradition.
We are a non-profit, co-educational college-preparatory school for grades 9-12.
Jesuit High School serves students of all religious faiths. Jesuit education fosters the harmonious development of the adolescent's gifts: spiritual, religious, intellectual, physical, emotional, and aesthetic.
Jesuit High School hopes to accomplish this development by demonstrating a personal concern for individuals, a special concern for the poor, an articulate wisdom, enthusiasm, and a sense of community.
In so doing, the school hopes to graduate leaders who are committed to serve God and their fellow men and women.
Our hope is that our students develop a profound sense of justice founded in love, i.e., leaders who are "men and women for others.".
