What is a Jesuit Education?

The Jesuit Order, formally known as the Society of Jesus, is well known for its widespread missionary activity and is best known for almost 500 years of excellence in education in Jesuit high schools and colleges throughout the world. The distinctiveness of a Jesuit education stems from its deep-rooted history and a mission grounded in faith and intellectual rigor. Since its beginnings in the 16th century when the first Jesuit institution opened its doors in Messina, Sicily, Jesuit higher education remains committed to academic excellence, service, leadership, and caring for the whole person. Jesuit high schools embody a tradition that has stood the test of time, and have the proven experience of transforming ordinary boys and girls into extraordinary “Men and Women For Others.”
