Education

Education

The education ministry encompasses Jesuit owned and operated schools as well as affiliated Ignatian schools.

Jesuit education seeks to affirm a world seen as ‘charged with the grandeur of God’. ‘To find God in all things’ was the aim of St Ignatius Loyola and his Jesuit companions, who first formed a community at the University of Paris early in the 16th century. Jesuit education has always been world-affirming, encouraging a study of all reality and seeking to produce wisdom.

The education ministry includes Jesuit involvement in tertiary education, academic research, public policy, university colleges and university chaplaincies. There are also Jesuit owned and operated schools and affiliated Ignatian schools.
