MISSION STATEMENT
To assist young men in their formation as leaders and as Men for Others through a program of rigorous college preparation in the tradition of the Society of Jesus.

Strake Jesuit is a Catholic, four-year college preparatory school for young men grades 9-12. The school was founded in 1960 by the New Orleans Province of the Society of Jesus, a religious order of priests and brothers also known as the Jesuits. The Jesuits bring over four and half centuries of tradition and commitment to academic excellence.

Located in southwest Houston, the school physically resembles a small college with its various buildings spread around its fifty-two-acre campus. This provides the school community with numerous outdoor grassy spaces and shaded areas for gathering and their personal enjoyment.

The current student population numbers just over 1,200. Faculty, staff, and administration total over 120 yielding a student-to-teacher ratio of 10:1. In addition, sixty-seven percent of the faculty have advanced degrees in their areas. Ninety-one percent of the student body participates in extracurricular activities directed by numerous members of the school's faculty. The student body–with fifty percent minorities–and the staff reflect the diverse character of Houston itself. To ease the burden of tuition for families, approximately eighteen percent of the student population receive assistance from a financial aid budget of $3.4 million.
