The Belen community is proud to announce that four student athletes will sign their national letters of intent to play sports at the collegiate level.
The signing ceremony will take place Wednesday, November 8, at 3:15 p.m., in the Belen Jesuit Dining Hall.
“We are very proud of these young men.

Belen Jesuit is located at 500 SW 127 Avenue, Miami, 33184.
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.
