This premier institution has been at the service of the youth of Mangalore and its environs, as an educational institution run by the Mangalore Jesuit Educational Society, for the education, formation and professional preparation of young people of all castes, creeds and communities without any discrimination.
However, as a minority institution it gives priority to the empowerment of the Christian community. And as an institution run by the Jesuits it places a special accent on preferential option for the poor.

Our Patron, St Aloysius, is an inspiration and exemplar for all who come to this campus. Born in a noble family and brought up in relative comfort, this medieval young Italian soon grew tired of living in the lap of luxury, and offered himself to the service of the poor and destitute by joining the Jesuit Order.
He died at the age of 23, a victim of charity and service of the poor, having contracted plague while ministering to the plague stricken in Rome. His integrity of life, his inner strength, his noble ideals, his self discipline, his immense compassion and his tremendous concern for the poor are held up for emulation by our students.
