Mission Statement

'Go forth and set the world alight'
St Ignatius


At St Ignatius College our purpose is to form young people of competence, conscience and compassion.


St Ignatius College is a Catholic community that is learning-centred and supportive in the Ignatian tradition.

The College is committed to education of the whole person and the development of young adults of competence, conscience and compassion who will be of service in the community.

We strive to recognise God’s presence in all things, to celebrate the pursuit of personal excellence and to live with hope and respect for all creation.


Ignatius in his writing calls us to strive for the ‘Magis’- ‘the more’. The more is a key to making choices among competing values. The entire life of Ignatius Loyola was a search for the Magis- that is, the more universal good, the more effective means, the more generous service for others, and the ever greater glory of God. Magis energises us for action.

At St Ignatius College we will:

  • Provide opportunities for students, staff, parents and alumni to experience a sense of belonging to a faith-filled Christian community and to commit themselves to being of service to others
  • Respect the role of parents as the primary educators of their children
  • Be enthusiastic in imparting knowledge of Catholic faith and traditions, enabling students to accept truth freely and develop a Christian moral conscience
  • Promote growth and improvement in learning and living for the greater glory of God in the Ignatian way
  • Support students in striving for their personal best- the Magis – in all their endeavours
