An inclusive, Jesuit, Catholic college preparatory school, Cheverus teaches students to be people for and with others and to pursue intellectual, spiritual, physical, and personal excellence for the greater glory of God. The school exists to educate students according to the 500-year-old Jesuit tradition of excellence in education. The purposes and objectives of the school find their inspiration in the insights of the founder of the Jesuits, St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556). Ignatius' vision of the “magis” challenges the entire Cheverus community to seek the “greater good” and to embody this vision by becoming men and women for others.
