Ad Majora Natus

– Born for Greater Things

Founded in 1879, St Aloysius’ College is a Jesuit school educating

boys to become young men of competence, conscience and

compassion. The College’s mission is to provide a Catholic education

that:-

• Proposes Christ as the model of human life

• Pursues excellence in teaching and learning

• Promotes life-long learning and spiritual growth

The College co-operates with parents in the formation of their

sons. It seeks to produce ‘men for others’ who are balanced and

motivated, integrating spiritual maturity and academic excellence

with a rounded social and physical development.

A Jesuit education stresses the formation of the whole person. While

attention is given to the development of intellectual and other

skills, emphasis is placed on the formation of character, socially-just

attitudes, and a commitment to deeper religious values.

The College motto

Ad Majora Natus

(Born for Greater Things) is what

Saint Aloysius is reported to have said in response to his father when

he chose humble service over worldly power. Drawing us beyond

self-interest, we are encouraged to put our talents and capacities

generously at the service of others. It encourages us to engage in

the reality around us with a compassionate heart, a discerning mind

and a courageous outlook.
