Facts You'll Want to Know...

Verbum Dei High School - founded in 1962 - is a Catholic, Jesuit, college and career preparatory complemented by our corporate internship program, serving young men of Watts and the surrounding communities who are economically and academically underserved. We develop self-confident gentlemen who are intellectually motivated, spiritual, contemplative, and courageous in their pursuit of a more humane and just world.

School Mascot


Verbum Dei Alma Mater

Hail to Verbum Dei, the Word of God, everlasting and true;
We come to the Nest young and uncertain,
just as the morning sun that’s just beginning to rise.
The Eagle stands before you wearing your colors: noble gold and blue;
With love strengthened by unity,
we’ll fight for the rights of all, faith, and liberty;
We leave you, accepting your challenge:
“Be strong my sons of Verbum Dei, to face and serve your world.”
Sing hail to Verbum Dei, the Word of God, everlasting and true.

Verbum Dei Pledge

I pledge allegiance to the Brotherhood of Verbum Dei High School. With my actions and words, witness to all the Eagle represents.

I soar high to the excellence with my faith, honor, values, principles, goals, total effort and standards - in every area of my life. I command respect and embody self-pride and dignity in my dress, speech and conduct.
