Jesuit Education

Jesuit education promotes the integration of the social, intellectual, spiritual, and affective dimensions of each student.  It urges students to reflect deeply on who they are and how they want to live their lives. While inviting each individual to be immersed in the world, it promotes engagement with the complex problems in today’s society.

Based on the profound belief that God can be found in all things, especially in the search for truth and meaning, students are invited to use their talents and strengths to respond to the needs and opportunities within our society through extensive formation, to realise their potential and become men and women for others.
