College Preparatory

Verbum Dei Jesuit isn't your typical school. It delivers a powerful and innovative approach to education that equips students with the knowledge, character, and skills to achieve their dreams.

One of the central tenets that animates Verbum Dei Jesuit's approach to education is cura personalis, a Latin phrase meaning “care of the whole person.”

The idea of cura personalis, rooted in the Jesuit tradition, is borne out in all aspects of the Verbum Dei Jesuit experience.

What does that mean? It means that the university is committed not just to your academic achievement, but also your mental and physical health, your spiritual growth, and your development as a moral, global citizen.

Through a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that combines in-classroom learning with four years of professional work experience, Verbum Dei Jesuit prepares students to be college-ready and career-prepared. Our academic philosophy is student-focused and rewards hard work, persistence, and mastery of content. Verbum Dei Jesuit educates “men for others”, men distinguished by their competence, conscience and compassion.

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.
