Jesuit Secondary Education Association

The Jesuit Schools Network (JSN), formerly known as the Jesuit Secondary Education Association (JSEA), was founded in 1970 to address the unique needs of the Jesuit secondary school apostolate in the United States. Simultaneously, the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) was formed to serve the particular needs of Jesuit higher education.

The group of 82 member schools, which includes 19 Nativity Schools and 62 secondary schools, educates approximately 50,000 young men and women yearly. 26 of the 62 secondary schools are coeducational and one is co-institutional. 6 of the 19 Nativity Schools are coeducational and 2 are co-divisional. Approximately 26% of all Jesuit high school students are minorities. JSN member schools provided over 93 million dollars in financial aid to students in need. Member schools employ almost 4,000 full and part-time faculty, including nearly 200 Jesuits.

Seven Jesuits have led the Association as its President since 1970: Frs. Edwin J. McDermott, S.J., Vincent J. Duminuco, S.J., Charles P. Costello, S.J., Carl E. Meirose, S.J., Joseph F. O'Connell, S.J., Ralph E. Metts, S.J. and James A. Stoeger, S.J.

In December 1994, JSEA was incorporated in Washington, D.C. as a not-for-profit corporation.

As of April 2015, the JSEA changed its name to the Jesuit Schools Network (JSN).
