More than just "where you went to high school..."

With over 10,000 living Alumni across the world, each graduate of De Smet Jesuit High School carries with them the Ignatian motto of being "Men for Others" and epitomizing the principles of the "Graduate at Graduation."

From the first Class of 1971 to today, De Smet Jesuit strives to be more than just a place our alums went to high school; it's Spartan Country. It's their second home.

De Smet gave me a foundation for academic success that has lived on into my first year at UMKC School of Dentistry. Without De Smet I’m not sure I would be on the path to become a DDS in 2026.

I chose De Smet because it was a good fit for academics and extracurriculars. When I arrive on campus I feel comfortable, similar to walking into home. My favorite part of working here is seeing my students and my runners.

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.
