Traditions take time and commitment. For almost 500 years, since its formation in 1540, the Society of Jesus has made excellence in education a tradition. For over 50 years, Strake Jesuit College Preparatory has built on that tradition. As a part of that tradition, Strake Jesuit uses the inspiration of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, to attempt to enable each one of its students to realize:
- that he is a unique and special act of Divine Creation and that God not only created him, but God created him with a purpose;
- that the world is “charged with the grandeur of God,” that every element of creation is worthy of study and contemplation;
- that he is a free person who has genuine choices to make, not only about his life, but about the world;
- that he must develop an ability to discern what is right and wrong and act on that discernment;
- that the Christian faith is a faith that does justice and that he is called to be a participant in the re-creation of a just world;
- that he is called to be a Man for Others.
To implement this philosophy, Strake Jesuit relies on a challenging academic curriculum and myriad opportunities ranging from liturgical celebrations, to service projects, to athletic, forensic, musical and dramatic activities. To learn more about our traditions, we invite you to attend our upcoming Open House.
