Media Protocol

Reporters and photographers are welcome to cover celebrations of the Mass and special events throughout the year, but we ask to be notified in advance so that we may assist you and provide proper clearance. With proper clearance, photography and videography is permitted inside the school. During the celebration of the Mass, no flash or camera lights will be allowed. Photographers and videographers are asked to stay a respectable distance from the altar, and not stand in the space between the sanctuary and the students. Under no situation may students be photographed or videotaped without clearance. Members of the media that come onto the school grounds without authorization will be asked to leave.


Archived footage and high resolution pictures of Belen Jesuit Preparatory School, activities and sports are also available upon request. Submit a written request via email to Teresa Martinez, Director of Communications at Please note in the email the reason for the request, news agency name, file/ video format and deadline.

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.
