The Global Map of Jesuit School is rich in many ways. Not only does it count the number of schools per region worldwide. It also allows us to learn more about each school in our global network and allows educators to get in touch with Jesuit and Ignatian schools from around the world.

Each school has a profile on the global map where you can find useful information about the school, such as: history, mission, vision, the contact details of the head of the school, the school’s website, address and location.

This information provides an opportunity for all teachers, staff and school directors to go the extra mile and to present the WORLD to their students. It gives us a chance to explore the world in a Jesuit context, by connecting with peers from different regions, generating ideas to work together as Global Citizens, learning about the cultures, and realities of other Jesuit schools and perhaps even discovering innovative ways to improve the delivery of the mission of Jesuit Education.

Our global network of Jesuit Schools is so diverse that its richness goes beyond borders.

The ultimate goal of the education which Coláiste Iognáid provides is an effective appreciation of the radical goodness of the world “charged with the grandeur of God” (1). In accordance with the Jesuit tradition, our response to God working in our world is the pursuit of excellence in all things, the Ignatian “magis” (2), as our way of co-operating with God’s dynamic creation. This principle is at the heart of all we attempt within the school and is applied to all areas of school life: our aim is to assist in the complete development of each pupil, as an individual personally loved by God. This concept leads to the full growth of the person which in turn leads to action through the use of talents for the good of others and learning what a Christian Faith that does justice means in practice.
