Following the 500 year-old Jesuit tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Jesuit Dallas strives to form young men into leaders who are open to growth, intellectually competent, committed to working for justice, religious, loving, and physically fit. Jesuit is focused on the formation of the whole student, and seeks to offer an unparalleled educational experience to all academically qualified students regardless of their ability to pay. During the 2023-24 academic year, Jesuit Dallas has granted over $3.1 million in financial assistance to 25% of the student body. Jesuit maintains a 100% college enrollment rate, while 81% percent of the 2023 graduating class received scholarships totaling over $40 million to their attending universities. In addition to a full academic curriculum, nearly 100% of the student body participates in at least one of the School’s 116 extracurricular offerings, which includes a medical society and nationally reputable programs in robotics, debate, and athletics. Additionally, students participate in the largest and most comprehensive high school community service program in the State of Texas where they provide care and support for the infirmed, education, environmental justice, immigration and refugee support, poverty and homelessness, and special education advocacy.
