The Society of Jesus is a religious congregation of the Catholic Church which was founded half a millennium ago by the soldier-turned-mystic Ignatius of Loyola. The members are called Jesuits.We dedicate ourselves to the “greater glory of God" and the good of all humanity. And we do so gratefully in collaboration with others who share our values. They have become part of thethe extended Jesuit family.
With 16,000-plus priests, brothers, scholastics and novices worldwide, we are the largest male religious order in the Catholic Church. We are pastors, teachers, and chaplains. We are also doctors, lawyers, and astronomers, among many other roles in Church and society. In our varied ministries, we care for the whole person: body, mind, and soul. And especially in our education ministries, we seek to nurture "men and women for others."
Education is the key to empowering the marginalized so that they can enjoy their God – given dignity. Education is a significant tool for the full development, and empowerment of the poor, the marginalized. So it is an agent of individual, social and societal transformation.
Goal of Jesuit Education
The goal of Jesuit education today is the formation of ‘multiplying agents’ and men and women for others. (Fr. Pedro Arrupe – Address to the Tenth International Congress of Jesuit Alumni of Europe, held in Valencia, Spain on July 31, 1971).
Jesuit institutions are to be of excellence, high quality in producing men and women of right principles, personally appropriated, open to the signs of the times, in tune with their cultural milieu of its problems and for others. We aim to form men and women of service, according to the Gospel, motivated by a genuine Gospel charity. (Our Secondary Schools Today and Tomorrow: Talk of Fr. General Pedro Arrupe on Jesuit Secondary Education, Sep. 13, 1980, Rome).
“Our ideal is the well-rounded person who is intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice in generous service to the people of God” (Talk of Fr. Peter Hans Kolvenbach at St. Paul’s High School, Winnipeg, Canada, May 14, 1986).
The Twin aims of this school are the following:
Best for the least and Education for empowerment
Right now we have LKG to IX standards. We aim to give the best education and formation to the neglected and rural communities. We aim to create enlightened leaders of tomorrow from the marginalized and oppressed communities. We gratefully acknowledge the wonderful contribution, support and help of Monsignore Fr. Albert Diedrich, the founder and patron of Loyola Academy and his team in Germany.
