Aims and Objectives
The primary objective of the college is to provide excellent higher education in a Christian atmosphere of all-round excellence to all deserving students, especially those belonging to the Catholic Christian Community. It also admits other students, irrespective of their caste and creed. The college strives to achieve the Jesuit educational goal of “forming men and women of others”. Rev Fr. Peter Hans Kolvenbach, SJ, Former Superior General of the Society of Jesus, explains the goal as follows:
“We aim to form leaders in service, in imitation of Christ Jesus, men and women of competence, conscience, and compassionate commitment”. In other words, the aim of our college is to produce men and women who are intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice in generous service to others without any prejudices based on race, religion, caste, or language.
“We will have failed in our mission if a student leaves the portals of our institutions without having grown in his sense of the Divine, reverence of the scared, respect for human life, compassion for the poor, concern for justice, awareness of oppressive social structures and commitment to help build a more just and more humane community”. In working to achieve this goal, the college, as a minority educational institution, reserves for itself its inherent and constitutionally recognized right of management and administration.
The Society of Jesus, a Catholic religious order founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1540, has been active in the field of education throughout the world since its origin.
Its members are popularly known as Jesuits. Loyola Academy Junior College is a religious minority Institution, run by the Jesuits primarily for the education of Catholic youth. It has also been at the service of others without any distinctions of caste and creed.
