If I were pushed up against a wall of choice and told that I could have only four years under explicitly Catholic auspices, I would, without hesitation, take the high school years. I’m convinced that the potential for a positive educational impact is greater in the secondary school years than in any other four-year block of time allocated to the formal educational process. And that, in my view, is why Jesuits have been in secondary education…almost from the beginning.
---William J. Byron, S.J.
As a Jesuit Catholic high school, we are stewards of our Catholic tradition and our unique Jesuit heritage. This is includes finding God in everyday life; a profound commitment to the poor and; to issues of social responsibility and justice. Ignatius believed that it is imperative to act upon what is learned–to use our values in service to humanity. We are called to make a difference in the world and to let our light shine.
A Jesuit education offers students the opportunity to grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Saint Ignatius students quickly come to understand the Jesuit motto of “For the Greater Glory of God” – known as A.M.D.G. – and incorporate that expression into their daily lives.
