A Jesuit Education has a clear purpose: the development of a well-rounded Christian person of competence, conscience and compassion who will be of service in the wider community and beyond.

The College community strives for the Magis (the more), to recognise God’s presence in all things, to pursue excellence, and to live with hope and respect for all creation.

In traditional Jesuit terminology, cura personalis aims to provide care and support for each student as a unique and gifted young person.

Academic challenge and rigour are fundamental to all curriculum development and student work practices.

Saint Ignatius College Geelong is amongst the top performing Catholic co-educational colleges in Victoria.

A Jesuit Companion School emphasising the pursuit of excellence, development of the whole person and service to others, all within a Christian framework.
