Gesu is a special place where children learn and grow, in academics and in character. Discover all that we do for our students and our community.
In one of Philadelphia’s most marginalized neighborhoods, Gesu is a work of faith in action. An independent school rooted in the Catholic tradition, Gesu is the collaboration of people of all faiths – donors, volunteers, parents, teachers, mentors, and people like you – who recognize the impact of quality education on children’s lives. Learn the story of how a struggling parochial school became a national model for inner-city education, and how deserving children achieve bright futures.
