Kaunas Jesuit High School (KJHS) is the oldest still active school in Kaunas city, established in the period of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, in 1649, and re-established in 1991. Establisher of the High school is Lithuanian-Latvian Jesuit Province. KJHS is a member of the Worldwide Jesuit Education Network, uniting 2120 schools and over two million students all over the world.
KJHS is a non-state catholic school, providing secondary education, which complies with national standards, developing skills and competencies vital to the active members of modern society. According to the research carried out by weekly newspaper “Veidas” and the rating magazine “Reitingai”, Kaunas Jesuit High School has been among the best schools in Lithuania for years. Despite that, we are constantly seeking for even more – not only to provide environment, which promotes discovery of intellectual capabilities of young people, but also to foster their spirituality, creativity, sense of community and physical activity as well.
Recollections home in Kulautuva, owned by the High school, is open for everyone seeking for more in-depth self-cognition, recognition of the others and God, in-depth analysis of secrets and purpose of life. Out students participate in globally acknowledged “Kaira”, “TEC” recollections, celebrate the Holy Mass every week, and develop chanting, reading and praying skills. We believe our students who witness the love of God will spread joy and peace among their families and friends.
Non-formal education, artistic and creative activities enable KJHS students to find their talents and gain competencies vital for the active and modern Lithuanian citizen. Wide range of opportunities to express oneself are provided starting from the possibility to be elected as president or member of Student’s parliament, editor, journalist or designer of the school paper “Ad majora”, to constructing robots, acting in the French theater, representing our High school in the world schools debating championships in English and German languages, developing Spanish skills, etc.
The sense of community is the core value, fostering a safe and developing environment. Our High school provides students with services of tutors, psychologists, efficient “Olweus” bullying prevention program. More, students are encouraged to participate as volunteers in various social establishments in Kaunas city, developing the sense to note the ones in greatest need. Every year, we organize the Healthy soul day, the Social activities day (we visit the elderly and patients in hospitals, organize environmental cleaning activities), celebrate different occasions together.
We recognize the importance of sports, active and healthy lifestyle and therefore ensure special attention to these concepts. Currently, our students are provided with a small sports hall (which used to be a school cinema before war) and an outdoor basketball playing field for their sports activities. We have a goal to build a modern, convenient and spacious multifunctional hall, simultaneously accommodating several classes of students, by 2022.
Currently (in 2020), KJHS consists of 822 students, 79 teachers, specialists, and 23 technical staff. Our High school implements basic (5th – 10th grades) and secondary (11th-12th grades) education, informal education, International Baccalaureate diploma programs (11th-12th grades, English language), Pre-International Baccalaureate (Pre-IB) diploma program.
We accept students to the fifth, the first gymnasium, Pre-IB diploma classes, as well as International Baccalaureate (education in English language) diploma classes. Moreover, we provide our students with a possibility to participate in students’ exchange programs in the USA. Our graduates usually choose to study in Higher education establishments in Lithuania and other countries. We are proud to see alumni of Kaunas Jesuit High School accepted to the best universities of the world – Oxford, Harvard, Cambridge, Princeton, and Yale Universities.
