This place is special. Let us show you why.

As the only Jesuit school in the region, Canisius offers a life-changing education. We focus not only on academic excellence but even more so on care for the whole person as we prepare students for college ... and for life.

Canisius provides a rigorous college preparatory education to an academically diverse, motivated student body. Our students earned more than $21 million in scholarships in 2022.

Support and care

Academic guidance, coaching

We offer a wide range of resources to make sure we meet our students where they are. From counseling services, consultation and more in-depth support, we provide your son everything he needs to succeed.

Go Crusaders!

Join our winning tradition

Canisius sponsors 19 varsity athletic teams, competes at some of the best home facilities in Western New York and regularly vies for championships. More than 55% of Canisius students participate in athletics.

What is a Jesuit HS?

All faiths are welcome

The heart of Jesuit education is the mission of St. Ignatius of Loyola: Developing the intellect along with spiritual growth and a commitment to social justice. 

Men for Others

Unique retreats & service

Another aspect that sets Canisius apart from other schools is the spiritual and personal formation offered to all students through the campus ministry department's retreats, service opportunities and liturgies.
