Fernandez and Family Main Building includes: The Ramón Guiteras Memorial Library, Dining Hall, Carlos M. Barañano Technology Center, counseling center, Fr. Benito Vieñes, SJ Observatory, and classrooms.

The Ignatian Center for the Arts is home to the Ophelia & Juan Js. Roca Theater and Olga & Carlos Saladrigas Art Gallery along with the Leopoldo Nuñez Rehearsal Hall, classrooms, and the center's administrative office.

The Raúl and Nidia Rodríguez Science Pavilion is home to our science classes with specialized labs for physics, biology, and chemistry. The Pavilion also houses the Fides et Raio Patio.

The Roberto Goizueta Athletic Center has two locker rooms, training room, a weight room, a wrestling room and indoor courts. The Gian Zumpano Aquatic Center is home to the Wolverines seven-time State Champion Swim Team and three-time State Champion Water Polo Team. Four tennis courts are located behind the Gian Zumpano Aquatic Center. These multi-functional courts will also function as basketball and volleyball courts. Click here to read more about our athletic facilities.

The Dining Hall features 13 high definition monitors, two 176” HD projectors and screens, and 30 Bose speakers. The kitchen is state of the art and can easily service the busy lunch periods as well as special events. The focal point is a historical mural which represents the school’s history from Cuba to Miami in photographs.

The Administration building houses the following offices: President, Advancement, Admissions, Business, Technology Director, and Alumni Association. The Cosculluela Hall is also located in this building. 

Continuing a tradition of over 140 years, the Belen Observatory for Astronomy and Meteorology is at the service of its students and the Miami community. Belen Jesuit is the only school in the United States equipped with a 16” telescope with a CCD camera for astrophotography. Weather forecasts are radioed daily to various cities in Florida. The observatory was made possible by donations from the Belen Jesuit Class of 1972. Click here to view Belen's Clear Sky Clock. 

The campus continues to improve with three projects on the horizon: the Arroyo Quad, the Our Lady of Belen Chapel and the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Center. The Arroyo Quad will be built on the grounds of the old pool and aims to create a space where alumni and students can be reminded of those Jesuits who dedicated their lives to God and served at our school.

The Our Lady of Belen Chapel  will provide a place for either the entire middle or high school to gather for prayer and Mass. It will be a place where alumni can return to get married or to have their child baptized. "It will be a place where HE will be present at every moment," said Father Willie. The Our Lady of Belen Chapel is scheduled to begin construction in 2019, with an anticipated completion in 2021.

Construction on the STEAM Center will begin during the 2019-20 academic year and will be completed in time for the 2020-21 school year. The STEAM program will be located on the second floor of The Roberto Goizueta Athletic Center. The STEAM program is made possible thanks to a generous $1.5 million-dollar gift made by The Goizueta Foundation.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
