Vilnius Jesuit High School is a Lithuanian gymnasium (classes from 5 to 12 grade) led by members of the Jesuit order. It is considered to be one of the most renowned schools in Lithuania and is aided by the German Foreign Office.[1] The current headmaster is Fr. Arturas Sederevicius SJ.

Vilnius Jesuit High School could be one of the oldest schools in Lithuania, if the current building would be considered as the successor to the Jesuit Collegium, which was turned into Vilnius University during the confrontation between Lithuanian Protestants and Lithuanian Catholics during the Age of Reformation.
