Forming men for others in the Jesuit tradition

St Aloysius’ College is a Jesuit school for boys established in 1879. Since that time it has served the city of Sydney by educating boys in the Catholic humanistic tradition inspired by the example of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The College shares this mission with hundreds of other Jesuit schools throughout the world.

St Aloysius’ College is committed to an education for each student that proposes Christ as the model for human life; pursues excellence in teaching and learning; and promotes lifelong learning and spiritual growth.

We are a boys’ school with a specific academic orientation; and we offer a choice for families who are seeking this form of education for their sons. We seek to form young men who hold an intelligent faith and who take their goodness into a world that so desperately needs it.

Overlooking the beautiful Sydney Harbour and next to its Bridge, the College supports parents in the formation of their sons into young men. Consistent with the Ignatian tradition of education, the College’s religious, educational, pastoral and co-curricular programs are aimed at forming 'men for others' - young men who are compassionate, competent, conscientious and committed.

Just as the young Saint Aloysius Gonzaga professed to his father, we challenge each student to seek the great things they are born for - Ad Majora Natus.
