Message from the School President

Dear Friends,

Welcome to St Ignatius College’s new website!

I hope as you scroll through the various pages website, you will come to learn how great it is to belong to this family and sharing together the Jesuit mission.

Since last year when the school was incorporated, as St Ignatius College, we join a 450-year tradition of Jesuit education a mission rooted in forming responsible leaders in the world. The Jesuit educational vision is rooted in the spirituality of St Ignatius Loyola, the fifteenth century Spaniard who founded the Society of Jesus. The vision of this educational experience is to help students discover themselves and experience God’s love and mercy. In the words of Arturo, SJ, Superior General of the Society of Jesus, “ the task of our Jesuit educational institutions is to help younger generations find their place in the world and before God, so they can project their personal and social development, helping to build a better world.”

Students are at the heart of St Ignatius College as a Catholic, Jesuit school. Our mission is to offer our students a robust academic curriculum in the sciences, humanities, languages and the arts, with a deeper spiritual experience that seeks justice and peace in order to build a just world.

I hope you enjoy the site. It is also my hope that through this site, you may consider some day to join us
