About

History

Founded in Dallas in 1942, Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas is a Catholic, private, independent, all-boys high school. 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.

Admission to Jesuit Dallas is open to qualified young men of all faiths and denominations, without regard to race or national origin. Prospective students are chosen by an admissions committee on the basis of past school performance, academic and personal recommendations, a competitive entrance examination, a personal interview, and demonstrated promise of future development. Additional consideration is given to members of the Roman Catholic Church, sons and brothers of Jesuit Dallas alumni, brothers of current students, and students of ethnic, socioeconomic, and geographic diversity.
