Belen Jesuit Preparatory School <http://www.belenjesuit.org/> was founded by the Jesuits in 1854 in Havana, Cuba. In 1961, Belen and all private schools were confiscated by the new political regime. The School was re-established in Miami that same year and has grown over the last five decades. Currently the enrollment is nearly 1,500 male students in grades 6 to 12 and over 6-thousand alumni.
