About Us

Verbum Dei Jesuit Credo

Verbum Dei Jesuit High School's singular objective is to be the best college preparatory school in Los Angeles. To do this, each action we take as an institution must be squarely aimed at supporting the personal growth and development of Verbum Dei students to equip them with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to achieve their full potential.

To achieve our objective, every aspect of Verbum Dei Jesuit must be focused on collaboration, teamwork, transparency, programming, and accountability. Our goals will be ambitious - borderline audacious - to ensure we stretch ourselves as an institution to continually strive for excellence.

Verbum Dei Jesuit is unique. Our entire student body is comprised of students from supportive families of limited resources. Each student is provided with opportunities to expand their minds and to develop their character both on-campus through the hard work of our talented faculty and staff and off-campus through our Corporate Work Study Program and community service. Combining these characteristics with the rigor of a Jesuit education truly distinguishes Verbum Dei's mission.

We hope you will join Verbum Dei Jesuit on our journey of excellence as we seek to provide each student with life-changing opportunities to become impactful in our community and beyond.

"We're not just a Jesuit high school plopped in the middle of Watts."
