Pardon Our Dust, Great Things Ahead

Belen Jesuit is constantly looking at ways to improve and enhance our campus. Construction on the STEAM Center will begin during the 2019-20 academic year and will open in time for the 2020-21 school year. Plans are also underway for the construction of the Our Lady of Belen Chapel. The anticipated completion of the chapel is in 2021.

Recently completed projects include the Indoor Baseball Facility, The Gian Zumpano Aquatic Center, Fides Et Ratio Patio and The Arroyo Quad.

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.
