Our Mission

Rockhurst High School serves the Greater Kansas City area by educating Ignatian leaders, MEN FOR OTHERS, in the Roman Catholic Jesuit college preparatory tradition.

In the spirit of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, its goal is the formation of the whole person within a diverse and disciplined environment, as one who is open to growth, strives for academic excellence, is religious, loving and committed to justice through service.

The Rockhurst Community strives to escalate the STEM values to STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. As a team, the Jesubots encapsulate these fields while also using our gifts from God in the service of others.

Our Vision

Rockhurst High School will be sought out and recognized for its ability to educate men for others.

Rockhurst High School will, in the Jesuit tradition, foster lifelong friendships based on enduring principles and Ignatian values. It will be nationally and locally recognized because of developing community leaders for an increasingly diverse world.

The Jesubots will exemplify FIRST values specifically Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition in all aspects of our lives as these align perfectly with our Jesuit value of “men for others.” We will prepare students to excel in the ever changing global economy, specifically in the STEAM fields.
