At its core, a Jesuit education:

  • Focuses on the principle “cura personalis” that seeks to develop the whole person–mind, body, and spirit
  • Provides broad-based, collaborative learning, and challenging academics
  • Encourages critical, analytical, and creative approaches to problem-solving
  • Forms men and women in service to others
  • Places emphasis on values, ethics, and the development of moral character
  • Builds global awareness through immersion and study abroad programs

For almost five centuries, Jesuit education has existed as a model of academic excellence throughout the world. Jesuits are synonymous with excellence in education and commitment to caring for the whole person–mind, body and spirit. Founded in 1534, the Society of Jesus emphasizes the pursuit of wisdom in the tradition of its founder, Saint Ignatius of Loyola.
