Whatever their modes of expression may be, the criticism that young people bring is authentic. We ought to pay attention to it. They are telling us that the civilization and the societies we have created are not satisfactory. Their idealism, sometimes impatient, is a proof of vitality and a source of hope. - Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J.

Mission Statement: Chicago Jesuit Academy is a full-scholarship, college preparatory, Jesuit, Roman Catholic middle school for young men from modest economic backgrounds. The Academy is distinguished by small classes, an extended academic day and a longer school year to prepare students for success in college prep high schools, universities and positions of community leadership.
Chicago Jesuit Academy helps students develop as young men who are open to growth, religious, intellectually competent, loving, and committed to doing justice in the service of others, in accord with the Jesuit mission and tradition. The school’s success in its mission is made possible by the disciplined sacrifices of our students, parents, faculty, staff, volunteers and benefactors.
