My wife and I both attended public school, and so did our son Graham through 8th grade. For high school, he was looking for rigorous academics, sports, and a community that prioritized service over self, with teachers who were involved and caring. We found all of that and more at De Smet. Graham is engaged at school, excited about his classes, loves playing lacrosse, and is developing into the leader we always knew he would become.

At De Smet Jesuit, caring for the individual person is a top priority. There are systems in place to make sure that faculty, staff, and students are growing in their faith as well as intellectually and academically. There are faculty days of recollection where we reflect so we can improve for later. And there are retreats like Kairos where students get to really  know themselves and grow in their faith.

I chose De Smet because of the unique brotherhood and the opportunity to develop special relationships with classmates and teachers.

It was important for us to continue a Catholic education into high school. De Smet has set a solid faith foundation for our son to build upon for the rest of his life, from school masses, theology classes, and retreat options.
