As a Roman Catholic and Jesuit Private School belonging to a global network of over 800 Jesuit schools, we draw inspiration from our 500 years of spiritual vision, educational traditions and leading innovations of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in the development of the whole person. We offer a uniquely challenging educational experience of academic, sporting, cultural and religious opportunities.
This is what sets us apart. We don’t just teach, we seek to form and transform those who pass through this institution to be global citizens and critical thinkers capable of solving real world problems. We do not just teach, we are enablers.
Because for us 100% is not good enough as we pursue the magis, we are not satisfied of our record of excellence which includes some of the country’s most intellectually distinguished, morally courageous and conscientious agents of change who compassionately serve and lead others in public and private sectors, civil society and religious life.
We have passionately embraced and continue to foster a safe and child friendly environment with our zero tolerance of all forms of abuse, in –depth faith formation, a culture of life-long learning and respect for human diversity. Thus, whilst the College is Roman Catholic, it accepts learners of other faiths. We are also poised for gender inclusivity as we prepare to go co-ed from form one through form 6.
Our mission is not just to ensure that the learner leaves the College having attained their full potential in academics, sports and cultural activities, but that they become agents of transformation in the world and that they will set the world on fire. If you entrust us with a boy and a girl, we will hand you back a man and woman. That is what St Ignatius College promises and delivers.
