Animating the Mission…

“To inspire students to become men of faith, scholarship, service, and leadership”



Grounded in Faith, Open to Growth

“To give students of all faiths a profound, life-changing experience that focuses on God’s unconditional love and a deeper understanding of themselves as persons of faith.”

The Grad at Grad: Religious and Open to Growth


Compassionate Minds, Intelligent Hearts

“To thoughtfully and intentionally integrate the fullness of human experience through spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical development.”

For and With Others

“To be informed by a faith that does justice. To challenge our students to be ‘Men for and with Others.’ To be in companionship with–and learning from–the disenfranchised, the marginalized and the most in need. To serve as Jesus did.”

Contemplatives in Action

“To develop young men who are compassionate, intellectually distinguished and morally courageous. To create students who become impactful ‘agents of change’ for the world.”

Inflammate Omnia

Ignatian Year Prayer

Saint Ignatius of Loyola,
Your name means ignite, to inflame.
Set our hearts on fire
To know Jesus more intimately,
Love Jesus more intensely,
To follow more closely.

May the Holy Spirit
who animated your conversion
guide our next steps.

Help us to create all things anew in Christ
Knowing that God’s love and grace are enough.
