Spiritual Counseling

Cura Personalis is an essential aspect of Jesuit Education that refers to personal care and concern for every student. Each student has the opportunity to receive spiritual counseling from one of the Jesuit priests or diocesan deacons. The Spiritual Counselor will guide and encourage him toward a stronger and deeper relationship with Christ. The Spiritual Counselor is among others in our faculty and staff that provide this special ministry to our students.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
