Why Verbum Dei Jesuit

Verbum Dei Jesuit High School isn't your typical school.

At Verbum Dei Jesuit, we strive for excellence — excellence for ourselves, our classmates and the world around us. For more than 60 years, we have been a place where boys become young men, with minds, bodies and souls prepared for challenges and life beyond. We strive to develop “men for others”, men distinguished by their competence, conscience and compassion.

What sets Verbum Dei Jesuit apart is that it offers an affordable, private, Catholic education and a clear path to college for our students. We are the only high school in Los Angeles to provide a four year integrated academic and corporate work experience. Our students work at some of the top U.S. corporations, which means they graduate prepared to be tomorrow's leaders.

Verbum Dei Jesuit is also the only high school in Los Angeles to make a 10-year commitment to our students. With a 100% college acceptance rate and a strong college-going culture, we support our students and graduates on their academic journey to and through college. 

The ideal of Jesuit education calls for a life of intellect, a life of integrity, and a life of justice and loving service to our fellow men and women.

Fr. Peter Hans Kolvenbach, 29th Superior General of the Society of Jesus
