Belen Jesuit has educated young men in the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola for the past 168 years. Our strong alumni association, with over 7,500 members around the world, is a strong testament to what it means to be “a man for others.” It is an incredibly exciting time to join the Belen family and become a Wolverine.

The annual Open House will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2022. Two sessions are being offered, the first at 8 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m. The Open House is the perfect opportunity for parents and their son(s) to learn about all Belen has to offer. Prospective families will meet teachers, administrators, counselors, coaches, and alumni, who will be more than happy to answer any questions they may have. They will share first-hand accounts of their experiences and what it means to be Jesuit-educated. Registration for the Open House is required and will open on Wednesday, September 7.

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.
