The Challenge Drive is an annual campaign to make up the difference between what Jesuit Dallas charges for tuition and what it actually costs to educate a student - the “Gap”.

Parents' Challenge Drive

Jesuit Dallas is a special place. It is full of talented faculty, staff, and administrators. It is blessed with loving and passionate parents. It is enriched by a vibrant alumni base. And, most importantly, Jesuit Dallas is dedicated to educating approximately 1,100 young men in a faith-based environment.


Donate Now

Your donation to the Challenge Drive ensures that tuition remains affordable. The funds raised from the Challenge Drive go directly to operating our school, so it is important that each family participates. It is impossible to understand your individual financial situation, but I certainly know and fully appreciate the numerous financial pressures that we all face. I don’t ask for your contribution lightly and I know that it will be a financial sacrifice on some level for all of us.

This year the Gap is $2,016. If you are financially able to give at the Gap level or above, please do so. If you cannot contribute at the Gap level or above, I ask that, after some reflection, you give what you can.

We are all raising young men. We are all entrusting Jesuit to help us with our task. Thank you in advance for taking the Challenge.
