As a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, U of D Jesuit's mission is to form "Men for Others" for the Greater Glory of God and live out the Gospel message through faith and service. Students are required to take Theology each semester and live out our shared faith through optional daily Mass, monthly all-school Masses, daily prayer, and community service. Retreats and reflections are offered at each grade level, culminating in our Kairos retreat senior year. Community service is a hallmark for U of D Jesuit, as we partner with organizations, such as Focus: HOPE and Gleaners Food Bank throughout the year. Our service program is highlighted by our Senior Service program which has been a staple at U of D Jesuit since 1971. Our seniors spend 14 Wednesdays throughout the school year volunteering at soup kitchens, food pantries, schools, or medical facilities for an entire day and living out our mission. We aim to form young men who will be intellectually competent, religious, loving, open to growth, and committed to doing justice.


U of D Jesuit offers 14 AP and a number of honors classes, as well as dual enrollment opportunities to allow students to challenge themselves at a high level, beginning in 7th grade. Students can further challenge themselves by taking classes through the Arrupe Virtual Learning Institute (AVLI) which connects students to a network of Jesuit educators around the world. Our Arrupe Learning Center provides support to all students with learning challenges. Peer and faculty office hours are also available for those students who seek additional help.


U of D Jesuit offers baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, Esports, football, golf, hockey, lacrosse, skiing, soccer, strength training, swimming, tennis, track & field, wrestling, and intramural sports.


Our mantra at U of D Jesuit is that nobody should be a 2:45 PM man. We encourage our students to get involved in one or more of the 40+ co-curricular offerings we have at the school, spanning from academic & professional development opportunities, arts & creativity, cultural awareness, environmental & sustainability, faith & spirituality, news & media, recreation & hobbies, and social & advocacy groups.
