At Verbum Dei, our Catholic college preparatory high school in the Jesuit tradition with an innovative Corporate Work Study Program, we are committed to holistically educating and developing students of southern Los Angeles to become leaders who are intellectually competent, spiritually rooted, and socially conscious.
As a Jesuit sponsored school, Verbum Dei embraces educational characteristics as primary goals which promote the formation of young Verb Gentlemen who already do and can ever more so in their future make a real difference within a society that generally can be so out-of-touch with each other.
