De Smet felt at home when I came in as a freshman. I enjoy the balance between academic time and sports and activities. We make time to learn, but we have our study halls and activity periods to balance everything out.

As a parent of five Spartans, I cannot speak highly enough of De Smet Jesuit and the formation of young men. Our sons each had unique experiences that could have only taken place in a community such as De Smet Jesuit, where each young man is encouraged.
At a Catholic high school we rehearse the attitudes and actions that mark our lives as Christians. And when we get to do this noble work at a place like De Smet Jesuit, we begin to discover that following Jesus can be quite fun!
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.

We have a special learning community at De Smet Jesuit in that we do not look at students as a number or a body that fills a classroom seat. We recognize the whole person of the student.

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