More about De Smet:

At De Smet Jesuit High School, our Jesuit tradition dates back more than 450 years to St. Ignatius of Loyola, even though our school, named for Fr. Pierre De Smet, has only been around a little more than 40 years. Our school was established in 1967 as a response to the growing demand for Jesuit secondary education in St. Louis.

Today we are one of 52 Jesuit high schools in the nation, which share the philosophy that education and development of all of our gifts and talents glorifies God. St. Ignatius, the founder of the Jesuit order, believed that students should be intellectual, compassionate, conscientious, disciplined, spiritual and responsible. This well-rounded vision of St. Ignatius is the root of our motto “Men for Others.”

We are a dynamic Catholic, college preparatory community of more than 10,000 current students, alumni, parents and faculty and staff whose members work together to build a challenging, academic environment built in the life and spirit of Jesus Christ. While members are constantly encouraged to develop strong personal values and convictions, they achieve success by realizing their leadership potential through positively impacting the lives of those around them.
