Jesuit K-12 Schools
Jesuit schools constitute one of the most effective forms for the apostolic activity of the Society of Jesus in the United States. Jesuits and their colleagues educate over 46,000 young men and women each year at 71 secondary or pre-secondary schools in 25 states, including the District of Columbia.
Of these institutions 64 are Jesuit sponsored, 4 are co-sponsored with other religious communities or the local Church and 3 have been endorsed by Jesuit provinces as Ignatian schools in the Jesuit tradition. The Board of the Jesuit Conference, which comprises the ten Jesuit provincials and the President of the Conference, relies upon the Provincial Assistants for Secondary Education (PASE), in tandem with the Jesuit Secondary Education Association (JSEA) as a national service organization, to work with the sponsored schools to ensure the vitality of their Jesuit mission and Ignatian vision as educational apostolates of the Society of Jesus.
