In the middle of one of the most marginalized neighborhoods of Philadelphia, Gesu School is a work of faith in action. Rooted in the Catholic tradition of the Jesuit fathers and the Immaculate Heart of Mary sisters, Gesu is the collaboration of people of all faiths — donors, volunteers, parents, teachers, mentors, and people like you — who recognize the profound impact of Gesu on the lives of the young people that it serves.

We invite you to enter the story of how a struggling inner-city parochial school became a national model for inner-city education, and how so many deserving youngsters find self-respect and life direction through their Gesu School experience. Not only are the children transformed by Gesu, but so are those who allow their hearts to be touched by it.
