Our School

We challenge our students to think critically, lead courageously and transform the world as Men for Others.

Our Mission

We are a Catholic, Jesuit college-preparatory school for young men, committed to our presence in the city of St. Louis and dedicated to building Christ’s kingdom of truth, justice, love and peace. We serve young men based on their ability to succeed, rather than their economic circumstances.

Through a rigorous academic program, we help our students develop critical minds and a life-long devotion to learning that informs moral choices and transforms lives.

In addition to assisting in the intellectual, aesthetic, social, and physical formation of our students, we help them develop compassionate hearts by fostering habits of personal prayer, reflection, and service for the Greater Glory of God.

Strong Community

Our students are embraced with respect and inclusion through need-blind admission, status-blind friendships, a rich diversity of cultures and perspectives, and extensive co-curriculars that allow them to maximize their potential — all in a loving, spirit-filled community.
