Grade 6,7,8 Exploration Study

With the permission of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, De Smet Jesuit High School has begun an exploratory study to determine the feasibility of offering an academic program serving boys in grades 6, 7, and 8. De Smet has engaged Meitler, a nationally recognized Catholic planning firm, to conduct this study. Meitler has extensive experience working with Catholic schools and new school/expansion initiatives nationwide. As part of the study, comprehensive community demographic research is already underway, and a market research survey will be shared with various constituent groups in early October. The survey will assess parents’ willingness to enroll their sons in the proposed new academic program for boys in grades 6, 7, and 8.

De Smet Jesuit expects to receive the results of the feasibility study in mid-November.
