Ignatian education seeks to form men and women for others

'Learning to serve - serving to learn'. Jesuit education is conducted in the name of Jesus and in the spirit of Ignatius, forming companions for a faith that does justice. The original plan of study in Jesuit schools was called the Ratio Studiorum (1599) it combined medieval scholasticism stressing - critical analysis, evaluation, communication, with a humanism stressing active learning - drama, plays, competitions. Today its inspiration is found in the Characteristics of Jesuit Education and Ignatian Pedagogy.

Worldwide, the Jesuits conduct 231 higher education institutions; 462 secondary schools; 187 primary schools; 70 technical & professional institutions, (with 1,413,640 students) and 2,947 Fe Y Alegria networks (with 1,516,166 students) in 70 countries, in total educating some 2,928,806 students.
