McQuaid Jesuit has been readying young men for productive, rewarding lives for more than 60 years. McQuaid Jesuit does more than prepare students for further education; it develops a love of learning, enduring friendships, and an enthusiasm for life and the opportunities that lie ahead. While founded in the Catholic and Jesuit tradition, it welcomes young men of all faiths and backgrounds.
As a Jesuit school, McQuaid shares in a network of 59 Jesuit secondary schools in the United States and almost 4,000 educational institutions sponsored by the Jesuits throughout the world. In the Jesuit tradition, there is no life without learning, no learning without love, and no love without God. Everything at McQuaid Jesuit is based on this belief. Students are invited – indeed challenged – to become “Men for Others,” dedicated to serving God and humanity and guided by a profound sense of justice.
McQuaid Jesuit's reputation for excellence is a tribute to its faculty and its focus on academics, complemented by athletics, the arts, and community service. Financial aid for qualified students in grades 6-12 makes a McQuaid Jesuit education available to many young men, regardless of a family's financial status.
McQuaid Jesuit is accredited by The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and The New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS). We are a member of the Jesuit School's Network (JSN), and the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA).
McQuaid Jesuit is under the presidential leadership of Robert E. Reiser, S.J. Fr. Reiser took over as president in July 2014.
