Admissions

You want high school to be the right fit. We do, too.

At De Smet Jesuit High School, we care for the individual student. Our top-notch faculty builds relationships that go beyond the classroom, and our students form a brotherhood that extends beyond these four years.

Choose Your Own Shadow Adventure!

Students in grade 7 are invited to spend a morning with us to learn what a De Smet Jesuit education can do for you. Choose from one of our specialized days to see which day might best fit your son.

All shadow mornings last from 9 a.m.-12:45 p.m and include:

  • - a customized session designed for your son and fellow shadows.
  • - an in-class experience with a current student as a guide. 
  • - a complimentary lunch, prepared by our alum, Chef Scott.
