5 Reasons To Consider Private High School for Boys

De Smet Jesuit High School specializes in the formation of young men. Here are a few things that set us apart.

  1. Our signature junior-year service program commits students to volunteering for an organization on a weekly basis for an entire school year, instilling in them a habit of service for and with others.
  2. An all-boy environment and a seriously dedicated faculty help teenage boys feel comfortable to try new things and grow with confidence.
  3. Daily reflection, sophomore interviews, and our senior capstone projects teach young men to contemplate, strive, and act for a better world.
  4. Our block schedule and 8:30 a.m. start time reduce stress for teenage boys, improving their health and wellness.
  5. Class retreats, a four-year homeroom program, and volunteering together help young men form lifelong friendships.
