St Aloysius’ College is a Catholic, Jesuit school for boys established in 1879. For over 135 years it has served the city of
Sydney by educating boys in the Christian humanistic tradition. The College shares this mission with over 700 other Jesuit
schools throughout the world and is part of an educational movement established in 1547 by St Ignatius of Loyola – founder
of the Society of Jesus. The College’s motto is
Ad Majora Natus
, ‘Born for Greater Things’. It is what St Aloysius Gonzaga
said to his father when he turned his back on worldly success, and chose to serve the poor and sick as a Jesuit.
At St Aloysius’ College, we embrace our Catholic identity; the opportunities for faith formation; the academic orientation of the
school; the priority it places upon a holistic education for boys; the accessibility and intimacy of the community; the authentic
traditions that have lasted for over a century; our beautiful location; and the generosity of the College’s teachers and parents
in the education of each student.
As a College community we are at our best when we exist at the tensions. When we embrace innovation
past; when we articulate our moral core
extending a pastoral hand; when we are humble
pursue a wilful path to
excellence; when we hunger for truth
embrace mystery; when we are apostolic
kenotic; when we are for the world
of the world.
We strive to be a loving community and we seek, in companionship with parents, to form virtuous young men who appreciate
their gifts, are seekers of truth, find meaning and joy in their lives, seek Christ in all things, ask the deeper questions, make
choices for the dignity of all people, and who are authentic in their relationships. We hope they will display a genuine
compassion for others, especially with and for the poor.
Our Strategic Plan is guided by the
Characteristics of Jesuit Education
Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm
to you as a guide for our College in its sacred ministry in the years ahead.
