The Jesuit School's Ecclesiastical faculty of theology prepares men and women to serve the church as scholars and teachers and does so through excellent example. Our faculty are not only experts in such fields of study as Hispanic theology, Scripture, feminist thought, and spirituality, they are also caring mentors whose goal is to aid each student's spiritual and professional development.
The Jesuit School faculty members have attended prestigious universities and theological centers all over the country and the world, including College of the Holy Cross, Institut Catholique in Paris, Loyola University, St. Louis University, University of California, Berkeley, and Vanderbilt University. They have also conducted extensive research in countless fields relevant to theological study and regularly publish new material.
