A Jesuit school should be about “improvement in living and learning for the greater glory of God and the common good.”

Saint Ignatius of Loyola – First Father General of the Society of Jesus

“By renewing our trust in God, we want to move forward as a global network with a universal mission. The challenges before us are many, but the apostolic possibilities can be greater. We need to detect them. God continues to work to create and save. The missio Dei continues. This faith encourages us to take on the path of apostolic audaciousness that makes the impossible possible.” JESEDU-Rio2017 (n. 73)

Fr. General Arturo Sosa, SJ – Current Father General of the Society of Jesus 

“Our identity is who we are; our mission is what we do”

Our Mission

Our mission relates to how we live out our Jesuit and Ignatian charism in our school communities and as a global education community. It explains why we do what we do.

Our Identity

Our identity is who we are as a Jesuit and Ignatian school and who we are within the context of our global network. The schools from our global network share the same Ignatian DNA, speaking a common language, and strive to live the same mission.

Our Community

It is through our interactions within the global community that we are able to live the creative fidelity, where tradition and innovation go hand in hand. Responding to the new challenges with new approaches and methods is the way we’re called to live our Mission and Identity.
