Arrupe Jesuit High School
Arrupe Jesuit High School is a Roman Catholic, co-educational, college preparatory school sponsored by the Jesuits of the Missouri Province. Arrupe Jesuit serves economically disadvantaged students from Denver’s inner-city neighborhoods. By enhancing the human, intellectual, and spiritual capacities of our students through a rigorous, innovative, and affordable college preparatory education, we offer hope for a brighter future to some of Denver’s neediest youth. Our goal is to empower graduates who will continue their education and return as leaders in their communities.

In the fall of 2014, Denver Test Prep provided ACT prep for over 30 Arrupe seniors. The program targeted highly motivated students that needed to improve their ACT scores to be competitive for top colleges and scholarships. Program participants gained admission to multiple top schools, with 9 students qualifying as Daniels Scholarship Finalists and 6 students winning the prestigious Daniels Scholarship.
Given the success of the 2014 program, Denver Test Prep and Arrupe expanded the program to provide ACT prep to all Arrupe juniors. This innovative program model combines large group classes, small group recitations, and 1-on-1 tutoring to help Arrupe students prepare for the ACT exam. Classes are led by a combination of Denver Test Prep instructors and Arrupe staff.
