Thank you for your interest in learning more about becoming part of the Jesuit community. Founded in 1847, Jesuit High School is a Catholic, all-boys high school following the 500-year tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Jesuit strives to form young men into leaders who are open to growth, intellectually competent, committed to working for justice, religious, and loving.
Jesuit High School, an anchor in the heart of Mid-City, provides an environment that reflects the values of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola and the long tradition of Jesuit education. Education is not an end in itself. It is a means to a greater end – our knowing, loving, and serving God.
Jesuit’s goal is simple – to form “men for others,” men of faith who are motivated by genuine Gospel charity; new men transformed by the message of Christ, who are open to their own time and to the future; leaders who have acquired in ways proportional to their age and maturity a way of life that is a proclamation of the love of Christ, of faith, and of justice.
Jesuit students, along with our 12,500 alumni, live by the motto Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam – For the Greater Glory of God. We are aware that it takes a special type of young man to accept the challenge that a Jesuit High School education offers. The advanced and regular college preparatory curricula provide a solid foundation and are designed to make students think.
