Academics

Chicago Jesuit Academy students work toward the Jesuit scholastic ideal of eloquentia perfecta.  They learn to think critically, write lucidly and speak articulately. Their course of studies includes Reading, Mathematics, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and Fine Arts.  By graduation, our students are prepared to succeed at Chicago’s most rigorous college prep high schools as well as boarding schools around the country.  Most importantly, CJA graduates are invited to understand that they are called to serve others with the gifts God has entrusted to them.

All students at Chicago Jesuit Academy:

  • benefit from a small-school setting where they are known and loved
  • study in learning groups of no more than 14 students per learning group during fifth and sixth grade
  • learn in classes of no more than 24 students in the seventh and eighth grades

We believe all of our students can learn, and we expect all of our students to learn.  On average, CJA students make seven years of grade-level progress in reading and mathematics in their four years at CJA.
