The Society of Jesus, whose members are known as Jesuits, is an early religious order of the Roman Catholic Church founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. Jesuits aspire to live and work as men of God and men for others.
Their ideals of love and service, faith and justice are lived concretely in their dedication to impart quality education over the past 450 years.
Their mission of academic excellence and preparing men and women for others is closely linked with their identity as Jesuits. Enriched by their rewarding tradition and experience in the field of education, Jesuits offer a holistic formation emphasizing the development of the whole person, head and heart, as an individual and as a member of society.
To enable the students to become men and women for others, the Jesuit education insists on academic excellence, critical thinking, creative research and overall personality development that includes character, moral courage to be free to make the right choices and commitment to the poor and marginalized.
