Thank you so much for coming to our website to review all that is Walsh Jesuit!

We hope you find a sense of energy and excitement that we experience every day at Walsh Jesuit. Nothing can compare with the experience of actually being on campus, so I invite you to come and experience Walsh Jesuit firsthand.

We are Walsh Jesuit:  a Catholic, Jesuit high school that offers an outstanding college-preparatory curriculum in a caring, supportive atmosphere that fosters intellectual curiosity and value formation. With the mission of forming Men and Women for Others, the very heart of our challenge is to give to Greater Glory to God as we work with our wonderful families to develop young women and men of competence, conscience and compassion.

Taken from a 1973 address by the Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., former Superior General of the Society of Jesus, the motto was presented as a challenge to Jesuit alumni worldwide and, in fact, has become the motto of all the Jesuit secondary schools throughout the United States. In his speech, Fr. Arrupe urged Jesuit alumni to use their gifts and education for lives of service by participating in the school community, becoming active in their own education, going beyond the minimal expectations in their development, and showing compassion for the least in the community and the world.

This is Walsh Jesuit. We take the mission to heart and will continue to accept the challenge that St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, gave to his friend Francis Xavier as he missioned him to bring the Gospel to the East: “Go and light the world on fire!”

For more than 50 years, Walsh Jesuit has been committed to academic excellence, spiritual growth and cura personalis; meaning care for the whole person as our students grow within our community each day. We hope you will share in the experience of our over 8,000 graduates who have gone on to light the world fire and made a difference in the world.

Come and let Walsh Jesuit be a place you will call home.
