  • Rockhust High School serves the greater Kansas City metropolitan area by educating Ignatian leaders, “men-for-others,” in the Roman Catholic Jesuit college preparatory tradition.
  • In the spirit of St. Ignatius, its goal is the formation of the whole person within a diverse and disciplined environment, as one who is open to growth, strives for academic excellence, is religious, loving, and committed to justice through service.
