    Strake Jesuit College Preparatory School Reviews

    Strake Jesuit was very welcoming and rigorous. The implementation of Catholicism was enough for those interested and provided many opportunities for religious students to grow in their faith. For those who came purely for academics they also received a great education and community. It's not the most diverse school but there are clubs for just about everything. Great place overall, however some teachers shouldn't be teaching here considering students are paying $20,000+ for an excellent education. Strake continually hired subpar teachers during my time there which made many students and parents upset considering the tuition. If you happen to receive one of the great teachers it is a wonderful experience and well worth the money spent. Also the food is extremely good.

    Truly one of the best communities in the city; with a faculty of extremely adept, experienced, and skilled teachers, administration, and coaches, and a student body that truly is a brotherhood, if you apply yourself and genuinely try, you'll find a spot, welcomed within the community, able to grow and thrive more than you otherwise could at other schools, I think.

    We saw the genuine character of the community during Hurricane Harvey: every single student was in the city, serving, every single day, with the administration tasking Seniors to contact any and all students they know to make sure they were out serving. The school has high standards for it's students when it calls them to be men for others.
    The academic rigor is challenging, but every student is given the opportunity to succeed. The athletic programs are one of the best in the nation with our track, football, and soccer teams nationally ranked in the top 10. The rugby team is back to back state champions, and the Cross Country program has gone to state 13 out of the last 14 years as a team competing. The Community and bond that Jesuit creates between the students is second to none. The school is perfect for anyone who is accepted because of the many extracurricular activities offered, and the 4 retreats, which bond the students unlike any other college preparatory, and the faculty is top-notch. Every student can agree that they fee that the teachers want their students to succeed and are open to help at any time.
