The Magis

– Striving for Excellence

A motto of the Jesuits is

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam

(for the greater

glory of God). The ‘magis’ encourages all to be better individuals and

to deepen their experience of God. Staff and students give witness

to the ‘magis’ in their generosity, compassionate care of others, and

diligence to both academic and co curricula pursuits.

Commitment to excellence –in terms of intellectual competence,

is at the core of teaching and learning at the College. The normal

progression for most students is to university study and the

emphasis of the academic program reflects this.

The Academic Curriculum has an emphasis on pursuing excellence

in the Humanities, Sciences and Creative Arts. The curriculum does

not include subjects from Technical or Vocational areas. In such an

environment, to be comfortable with the style of learning, a student

needs above average scholastic ability and a capacity to work with

diligence.

The program of study at the College is designed to promote a

life-long love of learning by promoting independent learning,

investigative skills, and an appreciation of the significance of what is

learnt.
