Ad Majora Natus (Born for Greater Things)
Ad Majora Natus is what a young Aloysius (Luigi) Gonzaga reportedly said to his father when he chose humble service over worldly goods and power. In his name and following his example, the boys at St Aloysius’ College are encouraged to put their talents and capacities generously at the service of others.
This giving encourages us to engage in the reality around us with a compassionate heart, a discerning mind and a courageous outlook.
St Aloysius’ College is a Jesuit school educating boys to become young men of competence, conscience, commitment 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 lifelong 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.
