The Jesuit presence in secondary and higher education in the United States remains impressive. The involvement of Jesuits in education matters for other complex of reasons. The recent history of the schools dramatizes many of the issues that run through the life of the Society: declining numbers, the pressure for collaboration, the impact of changing spiritualities on work, and bafflement about the nexus of priesthood and ministry. The forces pressing from the outside—principally, legal regulations, accreditation and funding criteria, and standards of academic freedom—and the responses to these factors on the inside, in the form of programmatic initiatives, have differed dramatically between Jesuit secondary and higher education. The triumph of the high schools is that they have earned what Jesuit identity they have, pooling their own resources and devising their own initiatives.
