Institutional Distinctiveness

Institutional Distinctiveness: Developing Holistic Integrated Individuals

The College follows the Jesuit educational paradigm which:

Sees life and the whole universe as a gift, calling forth wonder and gratitude Gives ample scope to imagination and emotion as well as the intellect

Seeks to find the divine in all things - in all peoples and cultures, in all areas of study and learning and in every human experience

Cultivates a critical awareness of personal and social evil but points to God's love as more powerful than any evil
