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.
Jesuit [schools] are never content with the status quo, the known, the tried, the already existing. We are constantly driven to discover, redefine, and reach out for the magis. For us, frontiers and boundaries are not obstacles or ends, but new challenges to be faced, new opportunities to be welcomed. Indeed, ours is a holy boldness, “a certain apostolic aggressivity,” typical of our way of proceeding. Our way of proceeding is a way of challenge... Mediocrity has no place in Ignatius’s worldview.General Congregation 34, Decree 2
