Our Facilities

The Our Lady of Belen Chapel is the focal point of our campus. The chapel provides a place for either the entire middle or high school to gather for prayer and Mass. It is a place where alumni can return to get married or to have their children baptized. 

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 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 that represents the school’s history from Cuba to Miami in photographs.

Continuing a tradition of over 140 years, the Fr. Benito Viñes, SJ Observatory 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. The observatory was made possible by donations from the Belen Jesuit Class of 1972. Click here to view Belen's Clear Sky Clock.

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.
