De Smet Jesuit High School’s bookstore is saving money while improving students’ bookstore experience.

De Smet Jesuit, in St. Louis, has officially partnered with MBS Direct to provide its students with fast, easy access to the books they need and make it simpler and more affordable than ever before to browse and buy course materials.

Based out of Columbia, Mo., MBS Direct’s Online Bookstore provides students the opportunity to log on and pick out what course materials they need for all of their classes from a customized list made up of books adopted by De Smet Jesuit’s faculty. Unlike other online retailers, this means students know every book they can find and order in the MBS Direct Online Bookstore will be the right one. MBS also handles processing and the orders are shipped directly to the student, leaving De Smet Jesuit free to focus on other ways to serve its students.

With a 99.9 percent order accuracy rate, students won’t have to worry about getting exactly what they need. If they have any questions or issues, MBS provides a 24/7 customer service call center.

“We partnered with MBS knowing they were so close to us that the books would ship to our families quickly and they would get phenomenal service,” said Dr. Joseph Klug, De Smet Jesuit Academic Assistant Principal. “I want to make sure that our families find it a seamless process and it’s very easy to order their books. I also want value, and to be sure that families are saving money. MBS’ prices are very competitive and are saving our families money, which is important.”

De Smet Jesuit High School is a Catholic, college preparatory community whose members work together to build a challenging, academic environment set in the context of the life and spirit of Jesus Christ. It enrolls approximately 800 students from the entire metropolitan area. The curriculum is college preparatory and involves programs in personal formation, athletics and religious formation.
