The Society of Jesus, a Christian Religious Order founded by St.Ignatius of Loyala in 1540, has been active in the field of education through out the world since its origin. In the world the Society of Jesus is responsible for 1865 Educational institutions in 65 countries, 356 of them being secondary schools. The Jesuit School aims at the integral personal formation of the young.
To accomplish this, special efforts are made:
to help the students to become mature, spiritually-oriented men of character
to encourage them continually to strive after excellence in every field;
to value and judiciously use their freedom;
to be clear and firm on principles, and courageous in action;
to be unselfish in the service of their fellowmen; and
to become agents of needed social change in their country.
The Jesuit School thus aims at making its own contribution towards a transformation of the present-day social conditions so that principles of social justice, equality of opportunity, genuine freedom, respect for religious and moral values, enshrined in the Constitutions of India, may prevail, and the possibility of living a fully human existence may be open before all.
