Your support of our 15th Anniversary Gala helps our students achieve!

The Washington Jesuit Academy is a tuition‑free, independent middle school that empowers young men from Washington, DC’s low‑income communities with the top‑rate educational opportunities and access that they deserve. Your investment supports our 11‑hour school day, 11‑month academic year, small class sizes, highly qualified teachers, and top‑rate services. You help our students form the confidence, curiosity, and character they need to thrive and to break the cycle of poverty.
