​Verbum Dei is a Catholic, Jesuit, college and career preparatory high school, complemented by our corporate internship program, serving young men of Watts and the surrounding communities.  We develop self-confident gentlemen who are intellectually motivated, spiritual, contemplative, and courageous in their pursuit of a more humane and just world.

As a member of the Cristo Rey Network of schools, our school operates a unique Corporate Internship Program where every student works 5 days a month in a corporate environment to help pay for the cost of their education, thus keeping tuition affordable.  We are firmly committed to preparing our students for college by providing an academically rigorous program in a safe environment.  In the past two years, 90% of our graduates went to four-year colleges and universities and 10% went on to two-year colleges.  We are looking for a dynamic individual who is dedicated to urban education to join our dedicated faculty and open our students’ eyes to God’s presence in the world around them.  Please visit our website at to learn more about Verbum Dei.
