Jesuit emphasizes academic excellence and intellectual challenge. It also recognizes the importance of educating the whole person, and thus every aspect of the school seeks the fullest possible development of every dimension of its students. Such a liberal education frees the student to develop fully the human potential God has given him. Jesuit’s education seeks to inspire a joy in learning and a thirst for greater and deeper knowledge.

Both academic education and religious formation in Jesuit schools draw their vision from St. Ignatius Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises. This vision sees our human goal as the praise, reverence, and service of God and seeks to free us for the proper use of all other created good as means to this end. Inspired by the vision of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Jesuit assists its students to appreciate the richness of God’s creation, to wrestle with the basic questions of human existence, to listen for God’s personal call, and to respond with a generosity beyond the ordinary and commonplace.
