Walsh Jesuit, a Catholic, college preparatory high school in the spirit of St. Ignatius Loyola, reaches beyond academic excellence to develop competence, conscience and compassion within its graduates. As a Christ-centered community, we strive to be men and women for and with others.
For over 50 years, Walsh Jesuit has been committed to academic excellence, spiritual growth & cura personalis (care for the whole person) as our students grow within our community each day. We hope you share in the experience of our over 9,000 ignited graduates who set the world fire & make a difference in the world.
Walsh Jesuit inspires students to deepen their faith and discover what they can offer the world.
From a 1973 address by Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., former Superior General of the Jesuits, this motto was presented to Jesuit alumni worldwide and, in fact, has become the motto of all Jesuit secondary schools throughout the United States. In his speech, Fr. Arrupe urged Jesuit alumni to use their gifts & education for lives of service by participating in the school community, becoming active in their own education, going beyond the minimal expectations, and showing compassion for the least in the community & the world.
