Nearly 20 percent of the Jesuit Dallas Class of 2017 was honored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) for demonstrating exceptional academic ability and the potential for rigorous college studies.
Jesuit emphasizes academic excellence and intellectual challenge. It also recognizes the importance of educating the whole person, and thus every aspect of the school seeks the fullest possible development of every dimension of its students. Such a liberal education frees the student to develop fully the human potential God has given him. Jesuit’s education seeks to inspire a joy in learning and a thirst for greater and deeper knowledge.
Both academic education and religious formation in Jesuit schools draw their vision from St. Ignatius Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises. This vision sees our human goal as the praise, reverence, and service of God and seeks to free us for the proper use of all other created good as means to this end. Inspired by the vision of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Jesuit assists its students to appreciate the richness of God’s creation, to wrestle with the basic questions of human existence, to listen for God’s personal call, and to respond with a generosity beyond the ordinary and commonplace.
Beginning this fall, Jesuit will be offering an Advanced Placement Environmental Science course, bringing the total of AP offerings within its academic program to 24, including its seventh in the sciences.
