Educating the Whole Person

Here at Cheverus, we prepare young men and women to be people for and with others. Jesuit education seeks to develop the whole student - mind, body and spirit. Not only are Cheverus students challenged academically, but they are also encouraged to honor their own unique passions and gifts. Cheverus is committed to cultivating excellence and forming young people into competent, intellectually curious and socially conscious adults.
The Inclusive Cheverus Community

Ask any alum what the best part of attending Cheverus was and they will tell you about the community and lifelong friendships they developed here. Our students come from diverse backgrounds, but they all share something very important -- a sense of belonging to the Cheverus community. Cheverus is a welcoming and safe place for students to grow academically, socially and emotionally.
