How to Apply

Jesuit uses a web-based application service called Ravenna for the submission of online applications. Please click on the link below to access our online application as well as all other forms needed to complete your son's application. Once you click on the link below, families will be asked to create an account in order to access the application. Please make a note of your account information so that you may use it going forward. If you have created a Ravenna account for another school and/or child, please use your existing Ravenna account. Your one Ravenna account will manage all of your Ravenna applications. If you have more than one child, you only need one Ravenna account since it accommodates multiple children applying to multiple schools. Please contact the Admissions Office with any questions.

Criteria

Jesuit is open to qualified young men of all faiths and denominations, without regard to race or national origin. Candidates must have successfully completed the grade previous to that for which they are applying. To ensure that students will benefit from a college preparatory curriculum, students are admitted on the basis of strong past school performance, positive teacher and personal recommendations, solid results from the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE), demonstrated promise of future development, and a personal interview.

The Admissions Committee typically admits students with a solid A/B average in their academic courses who score in the 60th percentile or above in each of the four areas of the ISEE (Verbal Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Quantitative Reasoning, Mathematics Achievement). In addition, candidates should have positive recommendations that show diligence, responsibility, curiosity, attendance, and respect in and out of the classroom.

Consideration is given to members of the Catholic Church, sons and brothers of Jesuit Dallas alumni, brothers of current Jesuit Dallas students, and students of ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic diversity. However, none of these factors guarantees acceptance.
