What makes Belen Jesuit stand out

List of 6 items.

  • A Catholic, Jesuit School

    As a school of the Society of Jesus founded in Cuba in 1854 and later exiled in Miami in 1961, Belen is Catholic and Jesuit by nature. At Belen students learn what it means to be men for others. They grow in faith and are inspired to work for justice for the poor and persecuted. They are called to take part in Christian Life Communities and participate in daily liturgies. Some students also travel to places like the Dominican Republic over the summer on immersion trips to live and work in solidarity with people in third world countries, and all students volunteer in their local communities. They attend retreats and grow closer to God through Ignatian prayer.
  • College Preparatory Academics

    Belen Jesuit is one of the state’s best college preparatory schools and has annually been ranked as one of the nation’s top 50 Catholic high schools by The Cardinal Newman Society. Our classes vary from Latin American History to Anatomy and Physiology to Mandarin to Philosophy.

    Our students can earn an AP Capstone™ diploma or certificate, as well as an AP + Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Student Achievement Certificate. In all, 40 honors and 27 AP courses are offered at Belen Jesuit. The school also has a robotics program and courses in art, music, and theatre.

    Each year Belen sends 100% of its graduates off to colleges all over the United States and abroad. Universities such as Penn, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Columbia, Dartmouth, Georgetown, Fordham, and so many others have Belen alumni walking their hallways and gracing their classrooms. In addition, Belen ranks as the number one college preparatory school in the nation to send student-athletes to the Ivy League. Our goal is to help each student find the college that is right for him.
  • Belen Faculty

    Belen’s faculty is made up of men and women who are not only experts in their fields but are also passionate about what they teach, and love sharing that passion and knowledge with their students. Our teachers are highly qualified, some with over 20 years of experience and with sixty-eight percent of our faculty holding higher degrees in education. Our faculty also includes seven Jesuit priests, one archdiocesan priest, two deacons and two sisters of the religious order of St. Philip Neri. It is no wonder our faculty strive to inspire our students into becoming not only avid 21st century learners but also true “Men for Others."
  • Athletics

    Over 1,000 athletes take part in 15 sports/ 48 teams. Our Wolverines have won State Championships in the following sports: Crew (1), Cross Country (9), Swimming (7), Water Polo (3), Track and Field (1), and Soccer (1); and state runners up in Baseball (1) and Football (1). 
  • Campus Facilities

    Located on 33 acres of land in West Miami-Dade County, Belen has a beautiful state-of-the-art campus with newly built Dining Hall. A science building with biology, chemistry and physics laboratories, a 660 seat theater with an orchestra pit, observatory and meteorological center, extensive athletic fields, Olympic swimming pool and tennis courts are just some of the facilities that help make Belen an excellent choice.
  • Legacy

    The Belen Alumni Association of Jesuit Schools from Cuba and Miami has over 7,500 members that participate in activities organized by the association. These graduates stay connected to Belen through a variety of events from class gatherings and homecomings to liturgies and celebrations. Several of our alumni have been so grateful for their education at Belen that they now form part of its faculty and staff.
Every student at Belen Jesuit is given the same opportunity to succeed and flourish. All students are encouraged daily to maximize their potential in preparation for higher education and beyond.”

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.
