Education primary and secondary

From the earliest days of the Society of Jesus St. Ignatius placed a heavy emphasis on the need for education, he himself returning to formal learning at the University of Paris after his deepening experience of personal conversion. Indeed he himself insisted that his own companions should also immerse themselves in theological and philosophical studies.

Today Jesuit run schools and colleges in Africa have continued this commitment to excellence in eduction by ensuring that students are instilled with the ability to become social innovators and work towards a deeper understanding God's will for themselves and the world as a whole.

Across the continent the Society is responsible for 31 high schools and even more primary institutions. As well as five formation centres, where new priests are prepared for their future life, we run social apostolates and vocational training centres which all offer much sought after qualifications. Currently, projects are underway to create five modern universities across the continent that will be engaged in a wide range of academic disciplines. These will eventually match the reputations of some of our most famous colleges in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Our ethos is based on the the formation of Christian "men and women for others"so that they can become competent in their field of study, persons of conscience full of compassion and committed to essential Christian values with a deepfelt preference for the poor.

Through education coupled with a mature faith solutions can be found to the problems of conflict, disease, isolation, the environment and economic disparity. Through our schooling we hope to create generations of leaders who can work in their everyday life towards a better society.
